Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Passionate people, huge scope, broad set of types of jobs available (location, function, product line, etc.), giving spirit started by Bill Gates but still reflected today.

Cons

Process has become heavy, internal struggles among the top-most leadership have worn thin.

Advice to Management

Remember that building and selling IP is still first and foremost about the people - the brain drain and stories of mistreated people have become the rule and not the exception.

    Design the college hiring program better and take effort to groom young, less experienced professionals from best of places.
