    Pros

    * well-funded and mostly stable
    * industry leader and maker
    * intelligent, good people to work with
    * very good health care
    * free drinks

    Cons

    * no longer or not industry leading in most categories
    * projects not always tied to customer results (solutions without problems)
    * playing catch-u[p in cloud computing
    * poor management and leadership
    * company plays on the defensive

    Advice to Management

    The company has been too tame since the anti-trust trials. The company needs to get back to its roots of being aggressive: embrace and extend, and vigorous integration/bundling of technologies. Don't let the leadership in Windows and Office go unused as a platform.
