    Pros

    Microsoft was an exciting and inspiring place to work. The amount of creative ideas appearing everywhere was incredible and in the best of teams they encouraged excellence, team work, work-life balance and delivered excellent quality products.

    Cons

    Group by group differences - some groups were excellent to work in and some were painful. If you find a good group it made all the difference. Microsoft seemed to have a problem with non-Redmond teams - they tried to pay attention and support them but often felt like all events, opportunities were in Redmond and being outside of Redmond was a problem

    Advice to Management

    Refind your excitement with technology & innovation. The spark was lost (or never had) in Silicon Valley. Back in 2006 Individuals were treated horribly and there was so much bad blood and dislike and management was at the root of driving this problem.
    Re-find the excitement and inspire people to achieve and excel rather then berate and abuse


  2. Awesome but thirsty for innovation.
