Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Great products
-great opportunities
-PM roll rocks

Cons

-hit or miss with management. i had really bad luck with a manager that rejected her last 3 interns.
-no personalized attention really -- off on your own and expected to figure things out completely (my experience, my friend had different experiences)
-traffic if commuting from downtown Seattle

Advice to Management

-Invest more in your employees
-Try to keep groups seem smaller

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft are many! Whatever you would like to do, there is a team at MS that does it. If you chose your team wisely (and you can if you good) then you may find a dynamic meritocratic and very fun place to work. There are tons of training you could take to land on your next position. The pay is quite good.

    Cons

    If fall on the wrong place, it will take you sometime to move around.

    Advice to Management

    Remind the managers that they go up if their managees go up

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart people with strong passion on delivering results.

    Cons

    The company is very large and for some this may be a maze but overall the mindset and the quality of people who work are fairly good. Just like any large company there are groups that are not as successful but that is to be expected.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on willing on the key product line vs. investing in areas that have not bloomed in decades
