Great for management at a certain level. Anything is forgiven. Job secure even when they don't know what they are doing.

New startup from 2006 out of managements area of knowledge. Bungled badly so dissolved a whole department of people. 120 jobs sent to India because of management at Sungard.

Don't start a new business area unless you get the right management to run it.
