Doesn't appear incredibly useful.  Maybe for diversity rank and billable hour rank.  But the layoffs list is not current.

Its sound like anouther eleite group of people thinking they are making a diffrence when in reality they are just wanting the cash and not wanting to have to work for it. Its lke the kid from the suburbs who goes downtown to protest unfair labor pratices that if actually outlawed would me he could not really afford his Ipod, Macbook and $100 jeans. They do it to feel like they are fighting the system all the time actually working to support the system with thier actions. 
*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

A lot of it is kind of silly IMO- especially their rankings, which depend on tiny sample sizes.

Some of those firms that get an "A" for diversity are there because they have 2 black partners. If many of those firms with a "C" rating hired a single extra black partner, all of a sudden they would get an "A" ranking.
