No opinion of CEO

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

You meet brilliant and experienced people.

Cons

I don't like the culture in Seattle/Redmond area; I'm European.

Advice to Management

Spend less on social events or add diversity in the events. I'm not really into the American culture when going out. I don't like playing video games.

    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
