It might be very personal experience. But my professional experience 
with Microsoft (and business environment) during the last two decades 
was "somewhat special" on some occasions. Frankly spoken: My impression 
is that the first interest of Microsoft is commercial success. And 
academic research is, if at all, a means to this end.

May be, this is a very personal experience. However, my personal 
interest is research. To make a living is a necessary evil.

 From my experience, for commercial business, the priority is simply the 
other way round.
