Good work life balance. Opportunity to work on products that impacts millions of customers.

Process oriented and management is not technical enough.

Advice to Management

Promote people with technical skills . Most of them are getting promoted just because of their communication skills.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great challenges working with some really smart people on software and products than impact literally millions of people

    Cons

    An ageist, cost cutting culture backed up by HR-by-rote, stack ranking with a forced curve and self congratulatory politics sucks the life out of you

    Advice to Management

    realize your best assets are your employees... give us a reason to stay (or return) and try to recover some of that fading glory before going the way of Lotus
