With Amazon so far ahead of the pack, it's surprising that Google, Microsoft, and IBM arent doubling down with their recruitment for enterprise sales roles in their cloud services divisions. Any insights into why they haven't been more aggressive with hiring in that space?

      5k is over the next year and they are roles not related to Azure at all.

      Best places to read up would be some blog posts by Scott Guthrie, Sinofsky, Scott Hanselman and others on how to interview or land an SDE/ PM role at MS, and ironically enough some great posts by MS employees on Quora.

      Also the RIF was primarily around people who refused to upskill themselves and preferred to stick to old tech, and also for people in sales who refused to adopt the new sales model and were stuck to the old 'sell a 3 year multi-million $ EA and coast' model. In short- deadwood.

    Gcp and AWS don't need to market their cloud products. Consultants that help enterprises setup this stuff on the other hand
