sweet swag, awesome gifts, you can get a nice project and make a difference. people are generally very intelligent and reliable

Cons

not always very big impact. there really isn't very much to complain about though. working for microsoft, so it's a big company with massive bureacracy and many meetings

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

    Pros

    On-going innovation offers constant new opportunities
    Working with top notch people and products
    Worldwide name recognition

    Cons

    Review process is subjective and political
    KT's goal-setting is primarily designed to minimize achievement/bonuses
    Under-invests in sales field (i.e. doesn't provide marketing tools, etc)

    Advice to Management

    When you hire the best of the best, policies that force employees into a performance curve (I.e. "stack ranking") is de-moralizing and counterintuitive. Show more confidence in your strategic direction and employees, and invest to help your teams win. Marketing support is not a nice-to-have when you're getting beat by competitors in key areas.
