Microsoft. First Generation. Cheryl Tsang.

Microsoft. First Generation. Cheryl Tsang. 2000.ISBN 0471332062. The story of 12 of the first Microsofites, the millionaires who have now retired with their riches. Lots of insight in many divisions and ways at Microsoft, plus insights into some of Gates and Balmers early interactions and styles. From employee no 7 to no 1007, these individual guys and gals have stories about product, division and international business development. They lasted an avg. of ten years and all of them would do again, given the chance. Of course they messed up their marriages, personal health and missed out on seeing their kids grow up. But they changed the world. In the bookbin. Easy read as the author is a writer. Get it from the library. I sense an edge under the book of much unsaid. I am waiting for the New Normal by MacNamee. It promises to turn our work upside down…again.
