    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - incredible benefits - large pool of internal jobs/opportunities to choose from - easy to move from group to group, as long as you're self-directed - more attuned and accommodating to your family needs

    Cons

    - growing inertia to make tough management decisions. creates a culture of protection and not screwing up instead of seeking new opportunities - little regard or reward for people skills, building a cohesive team - always on-call with work and emails

    Advice to Management

    Over the past decade, Microsoft has often stated a commitment to building and training management within their ranks. While there are ample opportunities to improve your technical and functional skills, there continues to be an abyss on fostering, building, and valuing people management skills at the company.
