Current Employee – been working at Microsoft for more than 10 years
Pros – Great pay and benefits, great technology.
Cons – Top heavy, everyone trying to get to high level jobs instead of doing their jobs. Higher levels taking credit for work done by their employees. Very internally focused, MS competes more internally than it does externally.
Advice to Senior Management – Get a clue. You are destroying a once great company. The technology is superior but MS needs to learn how to market products beyond product launch. Once the product is launched everyone thinks the job is done. You have changed the compensation program so that managers no longer can incent the right behaviors of employees, common sense has been removed from the system. Stop getting rid of you high paid employees. They still have a lot of knowledge that will take the company to the future. To many politics, have to play games to get ahead. Instead get rid of the people that are just along for the ride or those who Power Point themselves to promotion. Presentations do not guarantee execution............
