"I personally know several large teams in which almost all the employees have families, or in which the team is unusually diverse (for a software company — e.g., >50% women). Naturally, the employees on these teams tend to experience significantly better work/life balance."

Once again: Tee hehehe

-it is worrisome to see so many people scared by the idea of reading, its reading for god sakes!-

I`m not `scared` to read it. It`s just this doesn`t sound like something that would interesting off the bat, I`d at least need some pictures to break it down so it doesn`t seem like so much. Overall it just `looks` like too much reading for an uninteresting story (though there`s been some positive things from the people that di read)maybe a picture showing the place off at the bottom of every/other section wouldn`t make it so....`overwhelming`

I hate Mainstream companies. That`s why I rarely use their products.

Nothing I wouldn`t expect from any big company like that. Universal Orlando/Disney are about the same.

I read it, and I found it really interesting, seeing this guy`s perspective of Microsoft.

But I agree with Rasputen; you all are acting like a bunch of illiterates who`re afraid of reading simple text. I mean, the guy didn`t even use that many "big words".

I had a hunch that this would be a helluva lot more boring than the google one. I found myself to be correct as it`s big-ass paragraphs and no pictures.
