Default Corporate departments' take on 121 pilots?

Is there a predominant attitude towards part 121 airline pilots at the larger corporate flight departments? Or does it greatly vary? I was told by a pilot who had been at one particular FD for awhile that if I wanted to fly corporate, stay AWAY from part 121. He said corporate departments tended to prefer hiring from other corporate departments, whether Part 135 or 91. "Airline stink" was the name he gave to 121 pilots. Maybe it was something personal, I don't know. Anyway he said I should try and get my time at a 135 place, such as Ameriflight.

Then I have heard the exact opposite... that Part 121 time is usually well-respected at corporate FDs.

Can someone confirm and elaborate what the deal is here please?
