Other ADs have commented on this, but I think I need to repeat what they
said and expand on it.

Results are vary varied. Some are quite good (e.g. Gen-Art) and others
really depend on reviewer. ADs responsible for Directorates are faces
with the choice of firing half of their Directorates (which has some
rather unfortunate consequences) and/or raise the bar on who should be
allowed to join. We already struggle to recruit people at all levels of
our organization.

Best Regards,
Alexey
