No opinion of CEO

I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Awesome company to work...decent salary...very good work life balance...really intelligent people...and very employee friendly company

Cons

The indian senior management is very bad. Almost lots of politics in the system and too slow. Blame game is very rampant. Not much good work happening in india.

Advice to Management

Throw away the senior people in india and bring is good set of working people.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Smart, passionate people, good career growth potential with international mobility.
    Open and honest feedback depending on your manager
    Huge company with many possibilities, though it is increasingly difficult to change roles within the company.

    Cons

    Constant change in recent years (multiple managers, org names, and bad communication to field teams within my division).
    The changes, and direction of the company are moving in a good direction overall but change management needs a review.

    Advice to Management

    Need to change review system to move beyond individuals and reward (at least partially) teams. The necessity to create 5's and then boot them out does not encourage team work.
