    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    If you like software then working at a software company is something you should experince. I don't think Facebook and Google (for the most part) offer the same type of experience because they are service based instead of shipping a product

    Cons

    team leads are not very good. Most are just trying to get promoted to the next level.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many people and grow the ones you have.

    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
