Pros

Énorme opportunité de croissance, focalisation sur l'excellence de la direction, grande variété d'affaires et de rôles sur lesquels travailler. La société semble revigorée et re-concentrée avec les sorties des produits sur le marché de 2013 (Win8, Office

Huge opportunity for growth, strong focus on management excellence, wide variety of businesses and roles in which to work. The company feels as if it is re-energized and re-focused with 2013 product releases (Win8, Office 15, Azure, O365, Surface), and a commitment to be successful in areas where it has struggled, e.g. Windows Phone.

Cons

Le système de classement en pile a démotivé un grand groupe d'employés et rendu l'atmosphère un peu plus tendue.

The stack ranking system has de-motivated a large group employees and made the atmosphere seem a bit more cutthroat.
