Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Work and culture is awesome. If you are someone who values quality work and enjoys responsibility, no better place to be.
Employee benefits are very good.

Cons

Low and mid-level management are seriously useless. You can cut at least 2 managers out of 5 in a group.
HR is totally invisible and of no use at all. They are in tie-ups with Management for performance reviews. Instead of empowering and helping employees, they side with the management and are of little use to an average employee.

Advice to Management

Company wide vision and direction is good. The road ahead is tough but MS should stick to the tough choices they've made and success will come in the near future.
