No opinion of CEO

Pros

Very friendly and talented folks; my manager was very resourceful and did not just give me a project that was swept under the rug.

Cons

I feel like I could be making a larger contribution if I worked at a smaller company or SV area startup.

Advice to Management

Would be good to let incoming interns know ahead of time what they will be working on for the summer.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, easy to maintain employment if you want to collect paycheck for next 10 years.

    Cons

    Lack of urgency around critical new product launches and ability to compete in key areas (tablets, mobile, Internet), lack of prioritization, people focused on self-preservation vs making right decisons and working in teams.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage the talent you have to more effectively compete against Apple and Google!

    Pros

    I've worked for multiple Fortune 500 companys over the past 15 years, and Microsoft has some of the smartest and most hardworking individuals that I have ever met. I am challenged by my work every day, and take pride in how I have contributed to Microsoft. The point is, I'm given the opportunity ny Microsoft to do my best and work on products and services that impact millions fo people around the world. The benefits are great (until the Health laws change, at least), and the salary is now very competitive with other tech companies.

    Cons

    Hours can be long. Competition between teams and groups can be intense. Upper management could use a shake up. And the company could handle a major restructuring to get the stock moving up instead of staying flat.
