The thing that struck me is that they're extremely honest. That one
statement lets you know that you probably need to have some background in
whatever you're doing, you have to have incredible chops, and they're

Not to mention, the SMEs, along with being very busy, must be incredible
POAs (unlike all the darlings we work with).
