Approves of CEO

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

Pros

This is a great company to work for. Very good benefit. And the company does reward smart, hard working people.

Cons

The review system has forced curve. The organization is matrixed, meaning you will only work on a small piece of the pie. However, considering the scope of the company, I think that is innevitable.

Advice to Management

The company has very structed management trainings, so most of the managers are ok. Leadership should focus more on strategy, so the stock price can be higher.
