Pros

Treat us as if we are adults. We own our success, or failure, at Microsoft.

Cons

Sometimes ambiguous targets. i.e. sometime we are not provided enough clarity about what or how we are measured as employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the stock price moving. Reward you top performers. New rating system 1-5 appears to reward top performaers at a rate less than last year: fix that!

    Pros

    The best part of working at Microsoft is the general caliber of people that you work with. The level of commitment and passion for achieving results is amazing. This is a place that you should expect to work very hard, but if it is your passion, you'll achieve much and be rewarded.

    Cons

    You will be expected to work smart and hard. Flexible hours are normal, but you WILL need to put in a lot of hours to be successful relatiev to your peers. The company strikes a good balance between asking much from their employees but giving flexibility to support different schedules and outside demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wish senior management were more connected to customers and organized more of the company's resources toward what customers ask for. The company is too internally-focused, and it seems that many HQ people are more concerned with their scorecards and careers than "doing the right thing". Too many politicians and not enough workers.
