Microsoft Executives Nervous About Restructuring Plans

Microsoft Executives Nervous About Restructuring Plans, Steve Ballmer Microsoft restructuring Microsoft Mangament reorganization microsoft

Washington – Microsoft is headed for a big change and it’s making executives very nervous.

“Microsoft has not seen a change like what is expected to come since some similarly dramatic rejiggerings were done by former CEO and co-founder Bill Gates during his tenure. It feels like it is going to be titanic — that Steve (Ballmer) is doing this change for his legacy,” a source said. It has been noted that most of the top executives in Microsoft have been left out in the decision making process and that has made them feel on edge about their fate.

In a shareholder letter that Steve Ballmer sent out last fall, he stated that a major management reshuffling plan was in the works. He mentioned that his plans were geared towards making Microsoft a “devices and services company”. This is to maximize Microsoft’s growth and revenues over the next decade.

Ballmer is set to unveil his reorganization plans on Monday, July 1.

Rumor has it three Microsoft executives will gain new power when the plans take full effect – Satya Nadella (Microsoft Server and Tools president),Tony Bates (Skype and Lync),  and Don Mattrick ( head of Interactive Entertainment division and Xbox).

The three executives were profiled by Kevin Laughlin in the beginning of the month.

The lack of internal information about the upcoming management changes is causing a bit of discomfort among Microsoft employees. However, some are still hopeful that Ballmer’s plans won’t cause a major cutback on the workforce.
