    Advice to Management

    Take care of your American employees. You've squeezed them so hard that you've killed morale in Global Services. Remember that the recession is over and good employees will repay your lack of loyalty in-kind. You can't manage cash flow to the quarterlies forever without investing in your people and infrastructure.
