Thank you for sharing your story George. It's heartbreaking to find out one of the firms I respected as a young designer, and even modeled some of my design ideologies after is not the golden standard I thought. It's awful that changing course and making design meaningful again becomes the burden of survivors of workplace trauma - i have awful experiences from firms as well, though not as bright and shiny as IDEO. I hope your journey towards healing continue. You put words in a lot of intangible feelings I felt working for something I found questionable, and for that i would be forever grateful. Best of luck!
