Approves of CEO

Pros

Very good working condition, smart people around me and they are very helpful and friendly. Also resouce is plentiful at Microsoft.

Cons

Sometimes it takes meeting after meeting to make a decision when it requires running lean and agile. Also, HR people are very hard to deal with.

Advice to Management

The company should really be running a lot leaner and relocate budget on the projects that will yield the most benefit to the customers.

    Pros

    PTL's have a great opportunity to really dig deep into a specific area of focus within a business group. Most groups allow for strong ownership and decision making. Pay in the upper 80's is a definite pro. Being the true subject matter expect, and having the ability to advocate for your area of focus is very rewarding.

    Cons

    PTLs are often the bottom of an org chart in any group, still treated with respect but often are truly only versed in one area of the business which can limit advancement opportunities, or ability to understand the bigger picture of a business group.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, PTL roles seem like a robust role on any team. Ensuring the PTLs have an occasional opportunity to stretch into other areas (job shares, or even just on a project) may allow PTL's to be ready to move in to higher level roles overtime.
