    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great salary/benefits. Flexible hours. Professional work atmosphere but people are still friendly. Smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much competition internally. Work-life balance was't great - hours can be very long. Product innovation is slowing down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on product innovation and improve work-life balance.

    No opinion of CEO

    The best solution/product portfolio in the industry. The strategy really make sense. Need to execute and deliver.

    Too much bureaucratic... middle management not very useful (to say the least)

    Shake up the middle layer...
