Microsoft CIO Stuart Scott Gets Axed

From what I hear, there is already some Linux use inside MS. I don't think that would be the problem.

More likely backtracking and installing XP. I think MS is more worried about XP as a competator to Vista than Linux right now.

Which is hillarious, but at the same time, the probably think "at least we still make a profit with XP, unlike Vista"

twitter (104583) | more than 6 years ago | (#21266269)

From ZDNet [zdnet.com] [zdnet.com]:

One of Scotts biggest efforts to date has been to centralize IT operations, pulling functions in from the business units and in some cases stomping out shadow IT functions that inevitably sprout in such a tech-smart company. The company has consolidated 26 data centers to five and eliminated about 1,000 applications in two years, with the goal of taking out another 1,000.

Ballmer found out Scott was using Samba. It was ugly.

The above is a joke taken from pure imagination. Any resemblance to fact is purely co-incidental.

Ballmer Attitude? (1, Flamebait)

eldavojohn (898314) | more than 6 years ago | (#21265879)

Maybe his daughter was caught using an iPod [slashdot.org] ? Or perhaps his work machine's cache was found to have a Google Search results page in it?

But, in all seriousness, it wouldn't surprise me if Microsoft had a very stringent agreement with it's employees such that you're guilty of violating company policy at all times. Something really vague and impossible to avoid like "you shall not support a competitor in anyway with any of your personal funds or free time." They only let you go if they want to and so few get let go on these grounds that nobody really cares about it. Does anyone know if this is the case?

It really wouldn't surprise me if they treated their employees the same way they treat their customers.

Re:Ballmer Attitude? (1)

ByOhTek (1181381) | more than 6 years ago | (#21265987)

I doubt it is anything so draconian as that. I've heard of many competitor products being used inside of MS HQ.

The catch-all is probably something more subtle, like requiring employees turn off the lights in the office/cube when they leave, or something like that - easily forgettable and innocuous.

(Note: most companies I've seen have these to give them a right to fire anyone for any reason, so MS really shouldn't be treated differently from anyone else on this matter).

And he wasn't necessarily caught by a catch-all. It's also possible he did something legitimately harmful.

Re:Ballmer Attitude? (4, Insightful)

squiggleslash (241428) | more than 6 years ago | (#21266095)

Few people are ever fired for a breach of a minor rule in any corporation. Supposedly minor rules are usually only invoked if the breach is a cause of a wider problem. For example, an unproductive employee might be fired for visiting personal websites during working hours. The cause of the firing is that the employee isn't worth keeping because they (amongst other things) spend all day browsing the web and not working, not that the websites were not work related.

Remember, it kills morale and makes people want to leave if they're in fear of losing their jobs over something other than performance and/or disruptive behavior. It's also expensive - an employee of any worth takes months, sometimes years, to replace, and crucial information is inevitably lost whenever anyone leaves. While corporations suck at the whole morale thing, it's an exaggeration to assume that most people are fired over something "innocuous". Even if the reason given might appear that way, the fact is the corporation wouldn't be firing the person in the first place if there wasn't a good reason to get rid of them.

That said, the reason in this case could be as simple as Scott isn't worth anything close to waht he was being paid and was easily losable.

Re:Ballmer Attitude? (2, Interesting)

Ubergrendle (531719) | more than 6 years ago | (#21266117)

There's a few dangers with this approach...IANALB...

#1, if he can prove in court that Microsoft wasn't actively supporting this policy at all times and simply used it as an excuse to dismiss him, Microsoft would be legally liable. Same with using him as a scapegoat or as an example; disproportionate application of corporate policies is a big no-no. Varies by state-to-state of course.

#2, just because a corporation has an HR policy does not necessarily mean that its legal. This is somewhat less likely since I'm sure MS has lawyers who review these things (especially since they've been nailed for this in the past), but we'll know how 'fair' his dismissal was if this ends up in court.

My wild-ass guess would be something incredibly stupid or personally dumb happened, like using corporate resources to download pr0n or warez, or liasons with staff members, etc. On an outside chance, he might have pursued a strategic policy that was against the mandate of the board of directors (e.g. "he's our plan for segregation applications from O/S releases" board "you aren't supposed to do that"). Either way we're not meant to know, unless this ends up in court.

Usually, at levels this high, executives who misbehave are quietly asked to resign. The fact that his termination was this public and graceless tells me he did something pretty egregious, because Microsoft apparently wants to not just get rid of him but warn other corporations not to hire him. Misappropriation of corporate funds, in some way, seems the most likely candidate to me.

Please note I'm not informed at all, just speculating.

If it were something like that, though, wouldn't they be all about making it public? The fact that its kept so quiet suggests something that would embarass Microsoft if it got out. So they give him a pretty vicious public thwapping, but don't give a reason why.

I agree, but I think the reasons for public termination may be different. Possibly harassment or discrimination or something like that. Pay off harassed employee, with public termination of the harasser as a condition of the settlement.

I somehow find it hard to believe that MS would want to warn other corporations about hiring him.

It could also be a problem that other MS employees are aware of, and the public termination sends a notice to employees who would cross the same lines he did. Plus, it sends the message that the highest-ups face consequences for their actions, and thus can be good for company morale among the drones.

But for someone at CIO level to get canned it was either something that borders, or is just straight up illegal that MS is trying to keep under wraps primarily because it would damage their reputation, whether it was something tacitly approved by them or completely unknown to them. Or, possibly, they had it out for him and used some minor infringement as the basis for letting him go. Something like "Sorry, the company limit on gifts from vendors and suppliers is $50, and that widget was clearly $51 after tax!"

Either way I'm sure he has some majestic golden parachute that will help ensure that neither he nor his family could potentially go hungry for the next 5 generations if they're marginally competent at managing money, provided he never talks about it...of course.

A couple of problems (3, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#21266229)

There are a couple of problems with the theory that a Microsoft insider would anonymously post the truth behind Stu's termination:
  1. Only a few of us know the truth, posting the truth is a good way to violate company policies, and you see what happens when you violate company policies, so even anonymous posting just means pressure is applied to ... let's just say a few ... people until it is determined who the one is and BOOM, job over
  2. We don't like really like slashdotters that much, so we don't care if you never know the real reason
  3. The truth is not exciting or anything...it's just mundane policy violation...so posting it is less enjoyable than reading all the wild-ass guesses
  4. Halloween is over
I'll never tell. Even if I did, you'd be all "Meh" and say the idea that he was bangin' Melinda or selling Microsoft secret plans to Google is much more intriguing. So, sure, he was a Google mole. Just run with that one.
