Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Salaries, Benefits, Learning, Opportunities are awesome

Cons

Managers make or break your experience - no consistency across managers management skills, experience, expectations. Micromanagement is common.

Advice to Management

Trust your employees, give them space to grow and make opportunities available to internal applicants. Improve WLB not just by talking about it.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, large impact, global experience.

    Cons

    Windows, windows, windows...all rotates around the Windows platform vs. innovating and leading the market.

    Advice to Management

    Bag the horrible review model (MSFT doesn't hire 2, 3, 4 and 5 rating employees so folks hate the label) and free up innovation to compete with Windows.
