Technically fulfilling, a great work environment, but not for someone who likes to stand out in a crowd

    Pros

    Microsoft faces tough competition from Apple, Google, VM Ware, Amazon, Sony - you name it. But the opportunities are huge. I am sure that Microsoft will get its Mojo back and consumers will see it.

    Cons

    The review system is probably one of the worst I have seen in my career - it makes you totally dependend on your manager. With all the re-orgs you are not always in control of your destiny (aka manager).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a (marketing) way to make everyone and their brother undestand why we have the best "better together" story in the industry. Windows 8 is a great start but needs more consistency esp. Windows RT. Surface is by far the best Hardware in the market but gets downgraded by a so so experience on RT.
