    Too much competition internally. Work-life balance was't great - hours can be very long. Product innovation is slowing down.

    Focus on product innovation and improve work-life balance.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good breadth of technology to work on, good ecosystem of employees, projects and in general diversity to learn from.

    Depending upon the team, the work is either exhilarating or a little nebulous (too much in the future without a good business model)

    Cons

    - A lot of Microsoft teams need to clearly explain their business model to their employees. A lot of projects have this we willdo something and then figure out the business model.

    - Sometimes there are too many ppl on a project, in general we can do with lesser people and take more risks

    - The number of processes could be cut down to bring in more agility.

    Advice to Management

    - Dont be scared to take major big bets
    - Be more innovative and push forward the clarity in the business very well
    - Be paranoid even for the healthy and multi billion dollar products and push forward.
