People defect from companies all the time. The typical high-tech resume is a who's who of vendors. If you ain't jumping ship, you probably aren't that good.
Usually there is no fuss. But when you go to a direct rival, trouble can be had.
Salesforce.com isn't Microsoft's biggest competitor, but they do butt heads in CRM, which is apparently why Redmond had a conniption when Matt Miszewski left his Microsoft job selling to the government to take nearly the exact same job at Salesforce.
The crux is that old bugaboo: the non-compete/non-disclosure clause. According to Microsoft, Miszewski has to wait a full year before competing against his old employer.
Microsoft further claims Miszewski has confidential info that Salesforce can use against it.
