weak points by everyone, no one was able to focus on topic, and not really a fish market, as someone who tried was given a chance to speak.
i have a loud voice so i got the attention more times than i really wanted..

i would give myself 5/10

skipped many hearbeats!!!
no call at 98.73(seems to me even 99.xx isnt enough),
Got a call last year, my profile has improved(isnt a TL better than an engineer???)
process looks very much flawed to me..
