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…)


  • As a former MS employee Level 65, I couldn't agree with your comments more. The rating and leveling are all about how you are matrixed and have nothing to do with performance, customer satisfaction and business growth. I managed the "curve" and know exactly how this works.

  • On the back side of the links in the Breitling Watch , there should be a clear manufacturer's marking, and the strap should have the model number. If the Navitimer World lacks these marks. Also, the steel used in the fakes, for obvious cost-cutting reasons, is usually cheaper-looking than the steel used for Montbrillant Datora . Plus, the nine o'clock subdial in fakes shows the days of the week instead of the date, and the font is often wrong when compared to the Breitling Avenger .
    The kind of Louboutin Shoes , that will never ever wear off and go on to last you for years and years to come. So, go right ahead and exploit the very best Christian Louboutin Pumps that life has to offer you. The best of quality and range, from this extremely famous and equally popular Christian Louboutin Boots will ensure that what you have on your feet is a world class product. When you pay money for a shoe of this type, look for the whole look and the Christian Louboutin Sandals and heel too.
    Coach Purses was founded in 1941 as a family business selling nice reliable leather purses. This company works as a trio in the sense that Coach Legacy the designer, producer and marketer of Coach Madison own business. You could find and buy Coach Luggage online now too.
