    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Working with the latest technologies, Exciting Projects , Smart People, you learn something new everyday

    Cons

    The Review system is counterproductive, Managers are not trained to bring out the best in their staff , projects that get the plug pulled before they get a chance to prove out, Mean people win out

    Advice to Management

    You draw the best people but your approach to resource management drives them off and curtails their ability to contribute...forced ranking and HI PO investment is an outdated 20th century approach


  2. "Great experience over the last 6 years"
