    Pros

    Organized work, good leadership, methodical processes. I enjoy the benefit of working with a quality company in the recreational rich environment of Reno/Tahoe geography.

    Cons

    no career progression. Once you are there, you are there. Looking for ways to improve the top line growth is difficult. Most of our innovation is focused on cost savings.

    Advice to Management

    Get engaged and leverage the workforces additional skills and interests. Come up with new licensing models.

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

    Pros

    Great mentoring and training model.. Has some awesome people working and some great resources. It gives you good time to flourish and expand your skillsets

    Cons

    As you rise up sometimes politics kills you. Once you know the system it is easy to beat it and get lazy. A bit slow to change and not much new blood in the upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Fix that rating system and stop that stack ranking. I hated it being a manager to dole out those scores.
