    I have been working at Microsoft Licensing full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at Microsoft Licensing

    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 ManagementAdvice

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