    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.


  2. "Competitive and Rewarding"
