- 140 partners and 1400 Arthur Andersen employees hired by KPMG. -

I am not suggesting that they are bad, but I would be very careful hiring people from a company in which compromising ethical values and lying goes deeper than just top management, from what we can see.

After all, we are talking about people that were partners. It wouldn't do this country a lot of good having the same people working for a different company. In my view it took more than one rotten apple to do all the damage done in WCOM / Enron / and god knows what else.

I mean, shredding documents, hiding information, signing suspicious reports, it's not something done by a single person and it's not something that one would do without knowing that it wasn't right.

Anyway, just my 2 cents.
