Approves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Smartest group of people an any company. Diverse, caring, professional, people do what it takes to get the job done. Not afraid to switch course quickly.

Cons

It is a large company.

Advice to Management

Find a way to not be compared to Consumer Companies such as Apple and Google. Enterprise is a completely different market.
