- Ability to work from home
- benefits such as health care
- most of the products truly sell themselvesCons
- all about metrics, spreadsheets, reporting on the past vs. making real impact for the future.
- No real power to influence most marketing, creative, product, or strategy unless you work in Redmond. Marketing positions should be renamed to 'spreadsheet manager'.
- Budget cuts every year make you feel like a loser in a company with tremendous revenue growth - always expected to do more with less every year.
- POLITICAL warfare. Get far by shouting your mediocre work from the rooftops vs. doing stellar work and actually spending time with customers and partners.
It's more about how well you can get into the good books of key managers vs creating a positive impact/doing a great job.
