Spank! Lusty Level 65s - New comment on Achieving Senior Level 63 at Microsoft.
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Achieving Senior Level 63 at Microsoft":
Reading most of these comments frankly makes me sick to my stomach. Apparently the way to get ahead at Microsoft is to "triangulate", "manage up", "make partner teams win", etc... etc....
There isn't a single post anywhere to the effect that listening closely to customers and delivering what customers are repeatedly asking for (and Microsoft repeatedly fails to deliver) will help you get ahead.
Instead to hell with the customers - make sure to triangulate your 360 feedback with your skip-level manager while creating effective v-teams blah blah blah .... more management double-speak.....
Here's a thought for all the ra-ra Microsoft types. If (when?) your overpaid behinds get laid off when the economic crash finally reverberates through Redmond, what exactly do you think you will be bringing to the table when you and 20 other laid off tech industry folks are all competing for table scraps? I'll give you a hint - in the real world no one gives a damn about your level 65 lust and all the political maneuvering that apparently goes with it.
(looks like a nice dystopian movie just waiting to happen…)
