    2. I think they are talking about their size in term of employees -- even if you are providing high skills as a consulting company, it's not like growing the company size (unless you want to re-start a life as an employee :) )

    3. Not to mention the "hiring pool" they had from this other image sensor company just 20 minutes away...
