CBS - A 1994 CBS News profile got a sample of Gates' management style, which Allen describes as "brow beating" and "personal verbal attacks."
"You had to fight back intensely to stand your ground and make your position and your convictions expressed," Allen explained.
"But he didn't like to back down, so these fights would go on, you said. They could go on for hours," Stahl said. "You're just screaming at each other for hours."
"And that's exhausting. It's exhausting. But that was Bill's style," Allen said.
