Microsoft Giveth, and Microsoft Taketh Away

Actually, Microsoft taketh away (employees' jobs) and then giveth (severance packages). But after having given a bit too much severance to some workers, Microsoft wants to take away again by having ex-employees refund some of their walking money. We're holding our breath...

On the plus side, though, Microsoft giveth, or will be giving, lots of free training and courses as part of its Elevate America program, which does sound entirely worthwhile.
