When considering the workplace and the environment that it is contained with is a significant factor when deciding where to start your career.  To acquire and keep the best talent within your industry the place of business must attract top of the line workers. Google has an excellent representation of the necessary  steps to keep the best workers happy and working for them. I currently feel the pain of under utilization and lack of compassion.  It is very frustrating to be taken advantage of but the shape of the economy does not allow me to find jobs easily elsewhere.  I know as soon as I find a new job I am out of my crappy old one.
