The Microsoft I joined in 1999 is not the same Microsoft I left in 2010.

Pros

Same Microsoft who is no longer the Operating System company and Office Productivity Suite company. They are much more than that which I dare called a All-in-One solution for the customers computing needs...

Cons

Long gone are the Microsoft team members who actually cared about others they worked with, cared about the customers they bring value to in the form of software and service products they sell. The company is loaded with people with personal agendas such as self preservation and self serving attitudes. These people treat a job at Microsoft as if it was a 9-to-5 bank teller job....

Advice to Management

Management needs to shake things up. I doubt many of the people working there can only see things from a "micro" perspective and not a "macro" one....

    Pros

    The real software company who has the full products line. Great developer culture.

    Cons

    It is too big to move agile. Sometimes it needs catch up the cut edge trend like search, cloud.


  2. Great company to work for, cool technology

    Big company, lots of human resources non-sense, stack ranking, forced curves, slow moving company at times.
