    Pros

    Inspiring global reach - where else can you impact BILLIONS with a mission to "empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more". Satya Nadella's "Hit Refresh" culture is spot on. We are not the old Microsoft ... but not yet all we want to be. Benefits are INCREDIBLE. Pay is targeted in the top 2/3rds. Endless opportunities to grow and be challenged.

    Cons

    Our size, business complexity, and momentum is a blessing and a curse. Our challenge is to be agile (innovators dilemma), keep the customer at the heart of everything we do (despite layers of overhead), and embrace a "growth mindset" culture (when billions are seemingly at stake).

    Advice to Management

    Our mission, values, and strategy seems on target ... now live them out with full integrity.
