Microsoft's reputation is more of the button-downed nerd than a partying frat boy. That may be true here in the U.S. but in the U.K. Microsoft reportedly showed its wilder side.
Two years ago a company U.K. sales meeting turned to debauchery after massive amounts of Jagermeister and Vodka were swilled.
The news came in a lawsuit filed by the former GM of Microsoft U.K. Simon Negus. Microsoft fired Negus last year claiming he kissed another employee at a different Microsoft conference in Atlanta, Ga. Negus believes he was falsely fired, and apparently the U.K. partying culture is part of his argument. I guess the idea is why should Negus get fired when everyone is acting a little nuts?
