Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

- Lot's of smart people
- Great work-life balance
- Good comp package

Cons

- Lot's of people that think they're really smart...
- Attention seeking Divas galore
- No real concept of shipping software

Advice to Management

- Focus on results rather than on white papers - publications do not mean much if they're re-factoring someone else's patent
- Get some real Dev manager to drive development
