    Pros

    Microsoft still has the smartest people in the industry and continues to attract top talent. The employees are well taken care of with good salary and benefits and great work environment.

    Cons

    Senior leadership at Microsoft is primarily focused on personal empire building. Steve Ballmer is not a technology visionary and is unable to lead the company into the future. He seems to have surrounded himself with cronies and yes-men who only share good news, and do not show the real ground truth.

    Advice to Management

    The current review model encourages people to work against the interest of the company, while focusing on personal gain. People hide bad news, over play small improvements for visibility and spend a lot of time sucking up to the management chain.
