    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They had great health benefits (no longer im told) and there were so many people there it was hard not to find a friend

    Cons

    * 14 hour days
    * no idea how to run a service
    * bad managerial technique
    * No idea how to run a service
    * "No rollback" policy on releases
    * No regression testing "policy"
    * Afraid to fire people, this in turn leads to bad people simply circulating through different company divisions and decreasing overall productivity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to excel (no pun intended) and ignore most of what you learn in Manager Training, it will only damage you in the long run and promote mediocrity

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
