Approves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They treat you really, really well. World's best health insurance. Employees are clearly valued. Rating process feels very fair and transparent. Lots of interesting and relevant work. Very little bureaucracy. On the inside, it's clear that this is an exceptionally innovative company, and that we're working on solving all the right problems in the right ways. We also have a clear revenue model, which means that our interests are aligned with those of our product's users, in a way that isn't true for all companies in the industry (many of whom rely on advertising revenue to a much greater extent).

Cons

The food is pretty bad. (Yes, that's really the worst thing about working here.)

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft is known all over the world, which makes a great resume builder for people willing to stay for 5 - 10 years. They offer fantastic benefits, good pay and lots of diverse job opportunities. Microsoft is a great place to build out some great skills for your resume.

    Cons

    Microsoft has become a huge company with lots of internal strife and politics that often get in the way of productivity. The company is no longer innovative or agile, probably due to its size. Management does not value people or tenure.
