No opinion of CEO

I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great opportunities, challenging work, smart people, resources to invest in doing the right work.

Cons

Matrix organization can make it difficult to move projects forward when trying to build consensus across so many. Too easily silo'd into one area or domain of work when you want to grow your span of influence.
