Interviewing Bill Gates

Interviewer.If you were to write your own job description at Microsoft, how would it read?

Bill Gates.I'm the CEO, so my responsibility is not precisely defined. When the company has to change, I'm the one who has to lead that change.

Interviewer.Do you go against the opinions of your colleagues? If you are completely alone, do you stick to your guns?

Bill Gates.If it's a technical question or a strategy problem, then yes. However, if it's a business type decision, rarely is my conviction enough to go it alone. Usually I'd

take the time to get people to explain their views more clearly.

Interviewer. Would you say you are a good manager?

Bill Gates.Yes, I would. I make the right decisions. People are only interested in the quality of your decisions. If you are doing a good job, you should tell them so.

Equally if they are not, you should still tell them. Employees need to feel that you are sharing what they are trying to achieve and that you are constant in your decision making.

Interviewer. How do you feel if you have to fire someone? Is it easy? Do you have a strategy?

Bill Gates. No, it's always very hard. I don't hire total bozos, so it's generally a question of the individual not meeting the demands of the job. I certainly don't have a method. I suppose if I have to describe one, I tell them verbally.

Interviewer. If you had been on the IBM board of directors, would you have put as much software power in the hands of Microsoft as they gave you?

Bill Gates. You know, when we offered to sell part of the com­pany to them, I would have taken up the offer if I had been in their shoes. I would have really tried to devel­op software efficiently, not just to license it. I would have learned more about the economics of software too.
