The whole corporate behaviour thing is pretty interesting. When I do research on the topic, me and my ethics committee are generally pretty careful about the who and how we mention sensitive stuff.
My worst recruitment experience resulted in me getting a small cheque at the end for my expenses after I had a whine at them (and their overly elaborate recruitment process). Things were fairly bad for me work-wise at the time, and I ended up having to pawn my wetsuit not long afterwards. Which in turn closed the door on a career change to illegal abalone fisherman for me.
