Spoonfed Microsofties - New comment on 3,600 Microsoft Shoes Waiting to Drop.

Can the MINI be constructive and focus on positive things instead of creating an environment where MS employees keep venting until they are tired of their BS?
No matter how hard you people vent, I am sure you are not going to get your jobs back. Some of the posts here are outright crazy. This is an example where even smart/cool people can crack under pressure. Will any company give specific metrics/criteria for layoffs? The only reason is financial condition and economic stability. Period. Welcome to free market society and corporate America!!! Stop whining and bitching!!!
Note to all the H1-B bashers! STFU! Did you really think there are so many qualified Americans for technology jobs? If you are a hiring manager, just look at the resumes you get from College grads OR talk to a friend who is interviewing or in a hiring manager capacity. You will know the difference. The facts are out there - too many high school and college dropouts. You will see a lot of Asian students, because they realize academics is their key to success. America values creativity/originality and pop/rock /american idol seems to be the answer here.
Here are a couple of good things to talk about:
- Groups that are hiring
- Surviving in a layoff
- Performance review (enough BS on this already)
- Innovativeness and startup company
Finally whatever, MINI's goal is and I personally don't care about that - He/She should stop for a minute and start thinking about how his posts for the few days impacts MS image and overall perception in the wall street and among the new and aspiring candidates. He/She doesn't care because he just wants the company to be skinned down. I wonder what he is going to do when the number goes from 95K to 15K or 1.5K. BS!!! May be he will just tear down his blog. Such a self-conscious narcissistic creature.
I have said this before. For many of you guys, MS is probably the first job out of college and you guys don't know shit about the way other companies operate. Consider for a minute, the diplomacy, tactfulness and the business instinct to launch a product without a test organization and lets see how you guys do it. Many companies don't even have a Q/A. Dev does testing, travel a few times to customer sites and sit in customer facing meetings.
You MSFTies are spoon fed, with a lot of garbage and so you puke a lot of shit in this blog.
Remember, surviving in a bigger company requires a different mind set - a mindset built out of tolerance and sophistication and less rough edges. I hope many of you get hired pretty soon not into MS, but in a startup company where you can work long hours and learn the appropriate values.
(Some good things in there. Some very not so good things in there.)
