Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

Everyone is all about technology - it's in their genes, it's in their water and food. Excellent grounds for innovation. Gives an opportunity to someone to interact with the worlds best and finest. Of course, you'd expect nothing less of the company that has built software that runs the world...and continues to do so.

Cons

Lackluster compensation plan, outdated performance review standards and a fiercely competitive environment make career growth almost impossible.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of resources at your disposal. Amazing corporate culture, wonderful opportunity to be among some of the brightest people in United States.

    Cons

    Very stressful. Managers are not professionally trained and do not seem accountable for decisions effecting employees. Long term career paths are not clear.

    Advice to Management

    Train managers, create better long term retention of employees. Give people advancement based on experience as well as performance. Often the employees that take a lot of risk are also the ones that fail.
