Just a comment or two about this post - actually the original post.
Now - I personally have never worked for Microsoft - but have been working towards working there some day - hopefully soon ( waiting to see if i get 2nd interview ).
Anyhow - the reasoning behind writing this - guy.. calm down a bit.. There are times in a business where you have to let some people go. That is a fact of life in the business world. Sometimes you can hire - sometimes you fire.
All that aside - be happy that you got 4 years! Some of us don't even have our foot in the door yet. If you take the time to think for a moment what it is you have under your belt. You worked at Microsoft for 4 years. Now I'm not the "pro" on resume writing
- but it doesn't take a genius to realize that having MS on your resume/cv will certainly make you seem like a great candidate.
Lastly, as to not over do this thread even more so - I totally agree with what was said in the reply about "Perhaps your tendency towards bitterness". Take time to reflect on that. In fact - when I read your post - it was the first thing that came to mind.
