    Good access to regulatory environment.

    Not everyone is a lawyer - the more policy the work is, the more there are professional BS-ers.

    Hire more young people. It's a gerontocracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management has always been fair. When I first began in 1982, life was very different. If you where tuff enough, you could take it, and still come back for more. Still the best of the best.
