"It was hell," he recalled
Jupiter Research’s Microsoft’s Jupiter Research’s Michael Gartenberg is returning to the fold after a grueling…
…three-week stint at Microsoft.
The Macalope was truly dismayed to read last month that Gartenberg was leaving Jupiter as he is an excellent analyst and, well, he just hates to see anyone good go to Microsoft.
While Gartenberg may have quickly realized that the fit between plain-spoken analyst and spin-happy corporation is not a good fit, the Macalope also speculates that Jupiter made him a late but attractive counter-offer. In his premature Jupiter swan song, Gartenberg wrote:
My current job is great, my boss is wonderful and I was compensated OK.
Ouch! “Great.” “Wonderful.” “OK.” One of these things is not like the others.
Whatever the reason, the Macalope applauds the ultimate decision.
Well, assuming it is the ultimate decision.
