Brilliant minds; mediocre management

Senior Program Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsSome really smart people work at Microsoft. Some divisions are great. Others not as much.

ConsThere is far too much concern about what other "stakeholders" think.... soo many meetings that it takes forever to get anything done. The company rarely takes risks. Product reliability has gone done (just look at Internet Explorer).

Advice to Senior ManagementCut out the feature bloatware. Go back to basics. Keep things simple, fast, and easy to use.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
