A year or so has past since my full daytime job.
My last day at ACS, a Xerox company was April 4, 2012, when we were downsized. I was enraged and could only think malaise to my former boss. Xerox was a wonderful company but not in Monterrey. The ACS side were single minded people who could only think of the bottom line.
