redletterdave writes "Former Microsoft executive Joachim Kempin opened up about his experience working with current CEO Steve Ballmer on Tuesday, criticizing his former boss for the dubious way in which he protected his CEO seat, by continually and intentionally ousting any rising managers or executives that had potential to unseat him. Kempin cited Ballmer behind the departures of several prominent Microsoft employees including Richard Belluzzo, Kevin Johnson, Stephen Elop, Ray Ozzie, and most recently, Steven Sinofsky."
