    - no time for people management
    - team manager = controler
    - a metric is a metric that can' be changed even if it's set before the year starts and everybody knows it's an impossible goal = change role and someone else will get your role, your metric and get screwed.....

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Microsoft focuses on delivering top quality work, getting immensly satisfied customers shile never forgetting the people doing the job. Work life balance is a real focus area. Great people, very driven, positive and extremely helpful. Working here means working for a Company that takes people seriusly! There is all sorts of training and education available, and management assures that you focus on this by supplying the time you need.

    Cons

    Working in any multinational corporation has it's upsides and drawbacks. One can sometimes, albeit rarely, encounter projects that are too USA centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you keep your subs focused on interdepartmental collaboration, drive the message that it is one Microsoft to avoid interdepartmental politics.
