Pros

Great benefits, work/life balance, opportunities for advancement, passionate people

Cons

Lots of reorgs, process heavy

Advice to Management

Less reorgs, please. Every time we change management it seems they want to reorganize which causes a lot of productivity loss and disruption.

    Pros

    Good focus is places on long term investments. Microsoft has all the tools for success

    Cons

    Playing catch up in many areas. Late to the game with surface and phone etc..
    Lots of meetings, many with little action / ROI

    Advice to Management

    Management could focus on driving less meetings, less tiered approvals and greater immediate accountability.
    More focus on customer needs / asks vs. we will build it and they will come. ( Would help drive faster adoption )
