Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Good emphasis on career growth, opportunity to work on varied set of technologies, Great Managers to hone skills, World's smart people to work with, good values and culture in company

Cons

India center is more of an outsourcing center than a real product business center. None of the Leaders have good understanding of business. Product/Charters are very shallow compared to head office. At time it is just for the heck of it products are being done here

CEO has to be a technology guy and should be able to deal with internal politics between presidents

Advice to Management

Company has invested into multi-range of products. There is a need of consolidation and cuts here
