No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Very little bureaucracy for such a large organization. Generally tends toward moving fast with limited planning.

Cons

The stack ranking process is pretty brutal, impacting your career planning if you desire to be a long-term employee, and forces you to play politics to ensure you do well at review.
