Approves of CEO

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

Pros

They treat you really, really well. World's best health insurance. Employees are clearly valued. Rating process feels very fair and transparent. Lots of interesting and relevant work. Very little bureaucracy. On the inside, it's clear that this is an exceptionally innovative company, and that we're working on solving all the right problems in the right ways. We also have a clear revenue model, which means that our interests are aligned with those of our product's users, in a way that isn't true for all companies in the industry (many of whom rely on advertising revenue to a much greater extent).

Cons

The food is pretty bad. (Yes, that's really the worst thing about working here.)

    Pros

    At Microsoft, any employee has the ability to control his/her career. There are any number of opportunities to move and develop based on the skills and career interests that one may have. In addition, the organization is full of some of the best and brightest in the industry.

    Cons

    Some of the most prevalent downside of most large organizations also exist at Microsoft. For example, bureaucracy and political positioning are normal parts of many roles at Microsoft.

    Advice to Management
