    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Very rewarding work environment for most of the people I know.

    Cons

    The company used to be filled with the smartest people in the world. Now, not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to a 6 month review. The one year cycle is way too long and it's letting the lazy charge at the end for the high review scores. It happens a lot more than you realize. Very disheartening for those of us who want to do a good job and build great products full time.

    Pros

    Ability to work at a global scale, with the potential to get required resources

    Cons

    The reputation of having worked at MS is diminishing as they aren't viewed as an innovator. The stock isn't risking, so people work to advance themselves over others as a way to get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of big bets going on simultaneously. Either organize and resource to take them on, or try for fewer big bets

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
