"as far as management goes they have the creme de la crop, and anyone who says otherwise is just a hipster trying to be contrary." Thanks for the best laugh I've had all week. I've got tears in my eyes. As if working for one of the worst retailers out there suddenly makes you qualified to spout unfounded claims on Microsofts management. I wonder how many of those '20 Microsoft computer' were wiped clean and had something else installed?


Thanks for proving my point.My colleague friend and I are having a good laugh about this (IT hipsters are a running joke around here). Microsoft's success is proof of it's managerial prowess.

Maybe there's a reason you work at best buy and not actually in the IT field....
