Great working environment, large company with a lot of opportunity. There is a wealth of experienced talent there to learn from.

Stock performance! The location can be difficult for transfers in from CA. The sun rarely shines there.

Advice to Management

Get rid of Ballmer.

    Pros

    - Some ridiculously smart people
    - Passionate people who have lives outside work
    - Industry leading benefits

    Cons

    - Process heavy, can be worse depending on your team.
    - Slow moving even in areas where they cannot afford to be

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of excess fat, a lot of folks are 'resting and vesting' without adding value to the company, and end up discouraging the truly talented folks.


  2. Very comfortable company to work for.

    Pros

    Stability
    Focus on your growth
    Wide range of experiences at your finger tips
    Ability to drive your own career path without leaving the company
    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    It's large and moves slow if your passionate about what your doing. It's hierarchical and you have to be willing to play that game if you want to move up in your career. It can lul you to sleep in your job if you do not pay attention.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. They have fresh insight into something you may have been looking at for to long.
