Approves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great networking and teamwork plus a fun environment. I learned a ton from my peers and loved the morale events we had.

Cons

The work never ends and you can't effect much change. Plus you are constantly getting a new boss or new VP and that makes it very challenging.

Advice to Management

Try not to reorg so much, it's the reason I would never come back.
