I once ran into Mr. Shrader when I got on the elevator at the main offices in McLean when I worked for Booz Allen. He was by himself, standing in the rear corner. I greeted him, and he looked me up and down like an insect, and said nothing and kept staring straight ahead. Pretty much sums up my experience working at the firm and its culture created by Mr. Shrader. Needless to say I quit shortly thereafter.
