    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    There are a lot of opportunities.
    Technology company with lots of weight to throw around.

    Cons

    Politics and more politics.
    The director level managers are more oncerrned about their jobs and review then those who work for them.
    No alignment to industry - those on the inside that say how it is in industry are quickly overcome by those who have made a career of navigating the organisation - in other words, don't listen to people from the industry trying to make a change, listen to those who just move from job to job and know how to navigate that...

    Advice to Management

    Look at the industry, hire people from the industry and listen to THEM not to people who have worked at Micrsoft for 10 years and know how to leverage the system to defeat the change agents trying to actually save the company.
