    Pros

    It's been a good place to work overall. There were no major downsides. I enjoyed it.

    Cons

    This has been a good experience. I don't really have any complaints that I want to voice at this time. Thumbs up here.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing everything fine at the moment. No need for changes. I think it's going good overall. I really can't think of anything that would need to be different.

    Pros

    Organized work, good leadership, methodical processes. I enjoy the benefit of working with a quality company in the recreational rich environment of Reno/Tahoe geography.

    Cons

    no career progression. Once you are there, you are there. Looking for ways to improve the top line growth is difficult. Most of our innovation is focused on cost savings.

    Advice to Management

    Get engaged and leverage the workforces additional skills and interests. Come up with new licensing models.

    Pros

    Work with very smart people, learn a ton each day every day, always too many problems to solve and work on, never bored, I love that I control my own schedule for the most part.

    Cons

    Highly competitive, highly political atmosphere, we need more performance and delivery based performance rewards and recognition vs whatever is the latest thing

    Advice to Management

    More performance based rather than political or newest thing reactivity. More long term planning vs short term rewards based on our rewards system currently

    Pros

    Great working environment and interesting because it is Microsoft. Plenty of space to go for almost anything your ambitions desires.

    Cons

    Not many cons. You are in the largest software company and therefore there are some conditions and terms in order to make the company work efficient.
