Three letters: WOW. I’m wondering how it could be to work for a company which is in business for almost 250 years. One could always assume that this holds for all public sector employes in countries which exist for such a period of time 🙂 but clearly, the parallel is somewhat far-fetched.

I was also wondering whether it is realistic to assume that there are still ideas floating around, which can spin off a company and make it last this long.
