No opinion of CEO

Pros

Very friendly and talented folks; my manager was very resourceful and did not just give me a project that was swept under the rug.

Cons

I feel like I could be making a larger contribution if I worked at a smaller company or SV area startup.

Advice to Management

Would be good to let incoming interns know ahead of time what they will be working on for the summer.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The only pro remaining to Microsoft as an employer are the benefits. However, those are being eroded over the next two years thanks to the punishing taxes on cadillac health plans by the ObamaCare legislation. Rather than paying the tax Microsoft is diminishing coverages.

    Cons

    Management within product groups is extremely adversarial and it is impossible to advance your career without becoming part of this clique.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be some serious pruning of the principal level employees in the product groups. People have become entrenched in this level and are holding back the advancement of anyone who is not part of their clique. This is causing a huge migration of talent out of the company.
