I worked for MSFT throughout the whole 1990's. When I became a manager in
the Southeast Sales District I was forced to stack rank and kill off
several people. I should also point out that favoritism and racism played a
key role in the "Old Southeast District".
It was the cruelest, most vicious form of management ever devised. And then
dealing with the Old South mentality (I had relocated from another
district) didn't make it any better.
The philosophy was to get rid of the bottom 10% and refresh the ranks. I
found myself forced to get rid of people who had devoted many years of
service to MSFT's success but had either burned out or had suffered some
other life crisis (illness, death, divorce etc) which caused them to rank
last. So rather than work to improve our people we got rid of the heart of
I hated it. I loathed it. And it caused me to burn out too. I left in 1999.
Just in time to miss the burst of the Tech bubble. Yet our district
manager, (who shall remain nameless-he knows who he is), thrived in all of
this chaos and turned it into a lucrative career. While he stepped over the
bodies. . Such was the politics of MSFT at the time. Kinda like the old
Star Trek parallel universe episode. Where you advanced by forming
alliances and killing off your competition.
And hence the decline of MSFT since the late 90's. The Southeast Sales
District in the late 90's was the quintessential model for the decline of
MSFT. Yet some people came out on top. Cruelty isn't even the right word.
I'm just glad that I got to live the MSFT dream when it was a young,
vibrant, exciting, entrepreneurial company. I wouldn't trade that
experience for all the Tea in China. They ruined my company with politics
& bureaucracy. This happened under your watch Stsve. As much as I admired
you. You blew it. And that's why I left. Before I too got my 10% notice.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

and yet their abuse is equally doned out. DO NOT CROSS THEM!

guess that's not considered rape if you're not a woman being raped.
7:03pm: "We're the police, we can do whatever the fuck we want.."
6:49pm: What does one have to get education wise to become a police
officer.. asking for a friend.
6:42pm: The rest of my life is to fight against the police.. they are NOT
friends, so don't ever ever believe otherwise.
6:41pm: The police are uneducated, evil, and sadistic. Do not trust them.

for its own sake. Contact me ***@imurdock.com if you can help. -ian
