Other companies seek out the best talent, hire them outright with promises and golden carrots with hopes of capitalizing on their unique perspectives and innate talent.

Bottom-line for the duped: Stay true to yourself, live and learn, get it in writing and pay no attention to that stupid fish on the bumper.
