I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Big company which means you have a lot of support to get things done

Cons

Management is out of touch with the changing landscape of open source, and internal tactics prevent good collaboration/teamwork.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have done a good job getting rid of stack ranking, now make it a good company by fostering an environment of teamwork.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Some great development efforts and new technologies but somehow just missing the mark to be hip and intuitive and get the hardware and software mix to compete with Apple.

    Cons

    Just missing the mark - too much into the "Microsoft Way or the Highway."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with hardware makers to improve the fit and finish of products that look great and are high quality and function seamlessly with MSFT software. New tablet is in the right direction!

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
