    I worked at Vulcan full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and perks, really cool projects, lots of divisions that can make an actual real and visible difference in the world. I met so many high-powered and very highly intelligent people while working there.

    Cons

    Management is not always the most qualified. Basically you are serving a billionaire and his toys/ hobbies, and sometimes that leads to favoritism and terrible work-life balance.

Took about 1.5 hours overall.

Even with all his Vulcan logic, could Spock invest like "this"? Brainy billionaire Paul Allen organizes his business and charitable ventures under Vulcan Inc. The firm holds the Microsoft co-founder's remaining stake in the industry-defining juggernaut, as well as stakes in dozens of companies involved in technology, telecommunications, multimedia, energy, and real estate.
