Is Microsoft corrupt? NOT A CHANCE. They’re one of the most ethical Companies that ever existed.
Corruption begins with the leader. We all know who is the leader at Microsoft – Bill Gates. Need I say more?
I’ve often wondered what it’s like to work for Bill Gates. I was fortunate to find out from someone who actually worked for the man. This is what he says to the new people who join the Company:
“We are a big & growing company. Many are envious of our success. They are actively looking for every opportunity to make us look bad & damage our reputation. I expect each of our employees to behave in a manner that is beyond reproach. Everything you do must be totally ethical. If it is not, I will fire you instantly.”
Mr. Gates means what he says. Well done, Mr. Gates.
With any group of more than a hundred thousand people, there will always be a few bad apples. Occasionally, someone will get fired for taking advantage of his position, to advance his career. Microsoft will not tolerate this. The Company will reported him to the police and press charges.
Of all the Companies you could work for, Microsoft is probably the most ethical. This is evident, considering Bill Gates has NEVER been the center of any controversy or investigation, and probably never will be.
