Excellent work place

Technical Program Manager (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsWorking at Microsoft gave me a pretty good experience that you could get a chance to work with one of the brightest people.

ConsSome business owners that I know doesn't know much of what they are doing, they are simply doing what they were told to do any never try to drive the overall growth of the company

Advice to Senior ManagementI think this reflect to my cons of working at Microsoft, I don't think everyone is so bright as you think and a lot of people are simply sitting on their ass and collecting salary. I think a business person needs to know a bit more about the technical side, as same as the enginneering team may want to know a bit more on the business side.
