Steve Ballmer Tells Microsoft Employees He Had The Time Of His Life In Farewell Speech

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer hosted his last company meting recently.  At the event, he danced to Michael Jackson’s “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” and the theme song from Dirty Dancing, “Time Of My Life.”  Last month, Ballmer announced that he would be retiring from the CEO position.  He will maintain the role until a successor is decided. Ballmer has been CEO of Microsoft for the last 13 years.

Ballmer performed the dance and speech to over 13,000 Microsoft employees at the Key Arena in Seattle last week.  The event was very emotional for a very tearful Ballmer.

“You work for the greatest company in the world!  Soak it in!” shouted Ballmer.
