Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good compensation.
Good boss (immediate boss)
Some good peer.

Cons

You must be in the inner circle of your boss's clan. Else no matter what you do, u wont get good rating. No need to work hard, some just darn lucky to be parasite and get all the good sales and overachieve without doing much. Some been in MS for more than 5 years, act as if they are the smartest and pretend charming, but inside is full of evil thoughts. in another words, very political (Come on, u think Sinofsky wanna take a break?)

Advice to Management

Be fair, be objective. Open your eyes and see who are not working yet got all the undeserving compliments!

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse product portfolio which brings opportunities to work on diverse domains. Good work is done by few teams in India. Rest all are back-office

    Cons

    Hierarchical org structure and the infamous stack ranking system

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to work for goals and vision rather than competing with each other.
