Hopefully I never end up working for a company where people are irritated enough with the way management is doing things to inspire something like the Mini Microsoft blog. When your own employees aren't just telling people to not come work for your company, they're broadcasting it loudly on the Internet, then it's probably time for some big systemic changes.
Meanwhile, Google is now:
a "retirement cruise for Artificial Intelligence legends of the 80s and 90s."
Doesn't sound like a very exciting place either, and from what I hear from friends there who are just kicking back and waiting for their options to vest, it's probably a pretty apt description.
