Pros

Global company with tremendous reach. Significant potential for a turn-around. Services with tens or hundreds of millions of users.

Cons

Lots of interaction with Finland/Europe and Beijing which poses time zone challenges. Very competitive hardware landscape continuous to challenge market position.

Advice to Management

Evaluate alternatives to the Windows Phone strategy specifically Android (for high-end) and Firefox OS (for mid- to low-end).

    Pros

    Your coworkers are incredibly talented people with diverse backgrounds from all over the world. You get to work in a beautiful office with many perks. The opportunity to make big differences changing the company's direction and outlook is there, and is very exciting.

    Cons

    The layoffs during the time I was there created a nervous, dampened atmosphere. The "Goodbye after X years" emails got very depressing after the first dozen.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up a little closer with interns -- give them a list of things to handle, instead of one at a time with dead time between.

    Pros

    Bright engineers.
    Multi-national company with lots of cultural diversity.
    Benefits are very good.
    Very nice severance package.

    Cons

    Too many mid-level managers taking advantage of the company--unnecessary travel and then crazy spending on meals, limos, etc.
    Reliance on external contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Management has made some difficult decisions regarding the future of the company. Stick to your guns and continue to cut the fat.
