Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great benefits; steady, predictable. It's not going anywhere.

Cons

Steady, predictable. It's not going anywhere. Hard for a junior person to make it to senior.

Advice to Management

Management especially engineering management, needs more experience outside Microsoft. Key decision-makers have been there forever and don't know that often the world has moved on.
