Actually, yes. This was settled in 2000. It was huge. As a result, if you
work as a contractor at Microsoft (not a vendor), then you can only work
there for a year. At the one year mark you have to have a break in
employment of 100 days. This also prohibits moving from one area of the
corporation to another or onto a completely unrelated project within
Microsoft.

Why 100 days? It was a random - what I call aerial extraction - number. The
purpose is the person has to sever all ties with the company and this
separation does that. I had to go through the 100 days, and it made it very
complicated to get an interim job at the time. Three months would have been
easier. One month would have been perfect.

If you are a vendor, however, there is no one year deal. You can continue on
there for years that way. Vendors would be someone through a consulting firm
or such that is placed there or doing ongoing work for one of their groups.
