Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Unlike other companies, a developer is not a mere developer, but a lot more. Like customer focus, contributing to program management is also expected

Cons

Being a big company, there is friction between teams, there is not a very effective channel for intra team communication.

Review system is not really transparent

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - So many teams => more career options
    - Health benefits. While it is changing, it is still one of the best in the market.
    - Prime card (gets you discount everywhere for restaurant, activities)
    - Microsoft cares about environment: carpool incentive program (TRIP), MS bus with wifi, etc.
    - Flexible work program: Microsoft support it, but unfortunately some teams (managers) are not that good with it.
    - Tuition reimbursement
    - My lists can go on and on

    Cons

    While MS itself supports many good things, in the end it depends on your team and your manager and you HR.

    Advice to Management

    I would prepare speaking more before the interview.
