No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

If you like stasis, indecision, and lack of drive... great place to look for a plot.

Cons

Too many to outline, this is not the company you were looking for.

Advice to Management

Wipe it all clean and start with a new slate of individuals who actually understand... everything. Stop hiring retail execs to run a supposed forward leaning Software and Cloud Services company. Also, there are medications and treatments for adult onset ADD... seek them out before making any more decisions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good salary and good benefits. I don’t see much else as a positive. Matching 401K. Medical is consistent with a large company.

    Cons

    Horrible teams with dysfunctional people. Managers are awful and don’t lead. HR related instances that occur and the managers sweep them under the rug. Layoffs continue as the company changes. I would not recommend a job at MICROSOFT to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    CEO talks diversity and inclusion but that is completely it how the company actually is. The company lacks organization and a drive to the same mission. You give everything you have, and it still isn’t good enough. Leadership is so not capable to do their job.
