Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Microsoft, at least in STB, is a great place to work, great products, very good senior leadership and a great engagement with customers, partners and community.

Cons

Company structure and politics leads to a lot of time wasted and products shipped that show the seams of the company. A SteveB level restructure is needed.

Advice to Management

Restructure into 5 groups, get rid of peripheral distractions, stop focusing on the consumer stuff so much - we are not Apple so stop trying to be.
