The ms strategy is that everyone fights for positions of power within the company, and the ones with the biggest mouths (and biggest self-inflating lies) win.

I've seen the same thing in a lot of the companies I've contracted to (never ms).  It signs the death knell of any kind of quality or innovation, but the companies just keep rolling on, selling to suckers* by greasing their wheels with runny bullsh1t.




* "Suckers" being both customers of the company and shareholders/top management.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
