Good, but...

By Chuck Some Cheese - Dec 06 2011
Read more
The analysts are really good, but the interviewer must be an intern because she sounds out of her depth. She hmmmmms a lot as she desperately searches for a question. You can sometimes hear her shuffle papers as she looks for the next thing to say, and the phone even rings in the background. She also extends her question into a million other ones, leaving the author to try and get her meaning. She must take some presenting classes and quickly.
