Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great networking and teamwork plus a fun environment. I learned a ton from my peers and loved the morale events we had.

Cons

The work never ends and you can't effect much change. Plus you are constantly getting a new boss or new VP and that makes it very challenging.

Advice to Management

Try not to reorg so much, it's the reason I would never come back.

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. Their are a lot of opportunity if you want it. There is plrnty of food to eat around the area and the people you work with care about their jobs and great to work with. There are a lot of perks being a Microsoft employee

    Cons

    The company is very large and you can easily fall in the cracks if you dont fight to stand out. Parking can be a nightmare depending on the building you work in. The company contracts way to many people instead of hiring people on.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the little guy.
