I worked at Microsoft

Pros

Got to work with some great folks.

Cons

If you are not promoted on a regular cycle, you are moved out of the company. Stack ranking creates a competitive environment that is detrimental to innovation and improvement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of stack ranking.
