Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Very supportive environment. Opportunities to grow and develop a career. Possibility of international move if attractive to you

Cons

Process can make things hard at times. All strategy comes from corporate. Little ability to make a difference locally. A great place to work for Women, can be frustrating for men when you see an obvious emphasis on hiring Women into roles often with less skills/experience/capability.

Advice to Management

Divest decision making to the regions.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, tough problems, lots of rope to grow and learn! MSFT has amazing benefits, competitive salaries and allows you to move across organizations fairly easily so you can go from consumer to enterprise products and learn along the way.

    Cons

    While MSFT has abundant resources, they face the classic innovator's dilemma with large cash cows and falling stars that they are very afraid of cannibalizing...that means innovation is often slower and done with a weary, cautious eye.

    Advice to Management

    Take risks - cannibalize yourself before someone else does. Let people take risks in pilots and prove things out. Don't get stuck in bureaucracy.
