Higher Management should not hire the outside guys as managers as they do not understand the culture at MS , By the time they leanr the core values at MS many employees are already gone

    Pros

    Giving campaign: devotes employee and employer time to supporting causes that hte employee chooses.

    Cons

    No work-life balance, boy's club, token 'we support women' approach, easy to get chewed up by machine, people are aggressive and super competitive

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on grading on a curve: all employees are valuable or you wouldn't have hired them. Hold managers accountable for managing people, not just delivering on their commitments. Hire some good marketing/advertising people: we make good products, why are they unknown or continually slammed out there?
