Whiny over-privileged douchebags - New comment on Microsoft Has Turned The Corner.
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Microsoft Has Turned The Corner":
"The "it's not personal, it's just business" line that is often repeated in times of layoffs is pure BS. It is ALWAYS personal. It was personal when they told you that you had to "own" your job. It was personal when you spent your evenings at work to meet a deadline, forgoing time with your family."
No, they just tricked you into thinking it was personal. I admit, it IS deceptive on their part. They flatter you, say you're the best of the best, give you a bunch of benefits, tell you you're doing critical/important work, etc. Ultimately the company's loyalty to you (or the community) is not an official priority for anyone--not your lead, not your manager, not the executives, not the shareholders, etc.
I'm sorry... who tricked you? What kind of dumbass goes to work for a monopoly conglomerate and expects to be treated like a human being?
You whiny over-privileged douchebags really need a reality check -- welcome to capitalism. If you want to hug your boss and hold hands with the people you work with, you really need to find a different line of work. When you go to work for Microsoft, you step into the belly of the beast. If you ever forget you're in the belly of the beast, you have nobody to blame but yourself.
