"In 2010, Google, Apple, Adobe Systems Inc, Intel, Intuit Inc and Walt Disney Co's Pixar unit agreed to a settlement of a U.S. Justice Department probe that bars them from agreeing to refrain from poaching each other's employees."

How do you check that the companies are not still colluding? Is there some background level of 'poaching' the DoJ expects? Confusing.


I could tell a few stories about what happens when you engage in whistleblowing. Ex-managers try to fuck up future jobs, for one.

Whistleblowers are great for society, but I wouldn't advise it as a career move. Not unless you have your career set up (book deals, influential friends) already.
