The Banker and Larry Ellison
Typical call center. Not the one at where I worked, but so generic as to be interchangeable.
I worked for a credit card-issuer based in South Dakota. This was a larger business than it sounds. I occasionally heard the weekly net bandied about. It was at that point I realized that there are businesses so profitable and with a clientele so locked-in that they don’t need to care about burning money on IT nor anything else.
It was a privately-held company, and the President was fabulously wealthy. He’d hob-nob all over the country, and this occasionally put him in company of IT industry leaders.
