    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    good salary, good benefits, smart people

    Cons

    no check and balance for horrible managers
    MS Poll results largely ignored
    lots of power grabbing amongst individuals trying to make a name for themselves

    Advice to Management

    if someone consistently gets horrible managerial feedback, get them out of management, or get them training to become better. Pay attention to the attrition rate, and take the time to talk to people who are disatisfied to see if there is a common theme taking place.
