FARGO - There was no kneeling and no sword, but when Tim Brookins was named a Microsoft distinguished engineer five years ago by none other than Bill Gates, the experience was “almost like you were knighted.”
Approach Microsoft’s Fargo campus from the east and you can’t miss the tree, an imposing three-story cottonwood with a railroad spike driven into the base.
The spike, once a benchmark for surveyors, is at least 60 years old; the tree is north of 100.
FARGO – When Microsoft acquired Great Plains Software, Microsoft had about 40,000 employees, most of whom were in Redmond, Wash. But in the immediate aftermath of the deal, just one employee made the move from corporate headquarters to the Fargo campus.
Andy Westby remembers the first time he set foot in Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Wash. – a corporate city within a city that housed tens of thousands of employees in numbered buildings sprawled across hundreds of acres.
It’s been 10 years since Microsoft first made its mark on the North Dakota prairie.
Since then, the software giant has carved out an unmistakable identity for itself in the Fargo-Moorhead community and beyond. Nearly everyone knows someone who works at Microsoft.
