    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good physical infrastructure provided by company
    Get to work on latest technologies

    Cons

    Work long hours
    Highly competitive
    Sometimes have to work in not good products like FIM, BizTalk
    Very poor performance evaluation system where bottom 5% of employees are put on performance improvement or kicked out. Another 15% get less than 50% bonus.

    Advice to Management

    You are disregarding the bottom 20% of the employees. They do not get much bonus and are insulted within the company both by peers and management. Not good for team work.
