Pros

Microosft provides tremendous career growth opportunities and does a great job investing in the employee's professional development. Your ability to grow your career is exceptional.

Cons

Like most software sales organizations, the Microsoft environment is highly stressful and competitive and evaluates performance based on relativity to peers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new performance model should be re-evaluated.

    Pros

    Smart coworkers, lots of challenging work, great benefits. Nice environment, and depending upon how one acts, lots of opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Not well-managed, slow to respond, poor leadership, politics of a large corporation, value placed on tools process and tech over personal interaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of about half of Microsoft's middle management hierarchies. Keep the ICs and leads, and dismantle the little fiefdoms of Managers of Managers.
