    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Microsoft is one of the companies in the leading edge of technology, so you get to try out the softwares internally before it is released out to public. Has great health benefits. Working environment is pretty flexible.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a hard thing to maintain. It all depends on the team you are working in. But it is managable if you work it with your manager & team.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership team needs to focus on grabbing new market in the first place rather than follow another company once they have already taken the market. Good job with the Kinect!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Very good employer in terms of overall compensation package and creature comforts (office space, food services, etc.)

    Cons

    Very political and beaucratic. Personal careers and objectives are placed above customer and business decisions. Re-organizations happen so frequently it is disruptive to get things accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to take the politics out. It's like working in Washington DC most days.
