I recently reviewed a book called WHAT MADE jack welch JACK WELCH by Stephen H. Baum. You can read my review here if you want, but here's a great job interview tip from the book:
[A]sk the people you speak with to tell you about some of the company's successes and failures – ask for examples or stories. Also ask for stories about employees who have progressed successfully through the company ranks – and those who have not. Ask people to talk about individuals who are considered heroes of the company and those who are considered failures.
