Former Employee - Sales Manager

I worked at Microsoft

Pros

outstanding benefits, fair pay, smart people, challenging work that contstantly changes (keeps it interesting). Opportunity to try several different roles without changing companies

Cons

Company is not a small company anymore - lots of red tape and politics to get anything done
Lay-offs that really don't make sense

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't be afraid to cut the dead weight
be strategic about lay-offs - it's expensive to lay people off and then hire them back again a few months later
