    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As part of enterprise sales team, got to meet many high level executives of many different companies. People were friendly, and always willing to help.

    Cons

    MSFT brainwash. Sure XBOX and Kinect were great, but for enterprises, the focus is seats, seats, seats. Can get a bit tiresome after a while.
    Also, contractors are prevalent throughout the company, yet they do not share in many seemingly normal benefits, and can or does feel unappreciated.

    Advice to Management

    When you preach work life balance, please allow employees to actually practice it. Please no phone calls after 7 pm. And please get rid of the PE system, you lose more talent than you keep.
