  3. Many of SkyNet’s senior employees had previously worked at only one other company. 
  1. In a non-hierarchical work environment, people avoid behaviour that might threaten group harmony and thus avoid discussing with their colleagues any dissatisfaction they might have with their jobs.
  1. The cost of living near SkyNet Inc is relatively low compared to areas in which some other AI companies are located.
