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

Pros

Great place to get a breath of experiences.

Cons

The company is having an identity crisis now. I know they want to change, but there are so many people in current management levels who are not willing to change

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I started there 14 years ago and it was great because you could make a difference and people listened to you. Now people at Director and GM levels ego's are so big that they think they know if all and will NOT listen to people below them

    Pros

    Smart people. Global impact. Well known and respectful brand around the world.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation. Leadership team is not capable to stimulate innovation. Leadership team are good "sellers" and managers, but not visionaries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to have product visionaries. Also, please make sure you reward your employees based on performance and results, not on tenure or politics.
