Is Microsoft Filling Up With Old Folks?

"As we enter the 10s, the majority of top leaders at Microsoft are in their 40s and 50s." That's striking at a tech company, and Microsoft knows it—so they commissioned a study to help figure out what motivates these "millenials" (basically those aged 23-29) and how to attract and keep them.

It's a pretty interesting read, not least because, you know, I'm 23; as odd as it is to see people like myself written about as if we're a different species, the analysis is pretty much on the money. It's also good to see that MS realizes they've got to look to the youth not just as people to train to take over the reins, but also people who may have a skill set and knowledge that the older generation doesn't.
