    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities; some great, some not so great. Considering that there is a lot of potential; you may find what you're looking for here.

    Cons

    Vendor to FTE relationship is generally kind of poor; the FTEs tend to look down on the vendor vendor contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Management is stuck in a groove and can't get up. There is not enough laser-focus effort to steer the ship. A company that can 'turn on a dime' is more exciting to work for.

    Pros

    - Great talent. There is some really good talent in Microsoft and opportunity to work and learn from them is awesome.
    - Microsoft provides opportunity to work on wide spectrum of technologies - Bing, Server, Windows, XBOX, Office
    - Microsoft provides good work life balance.
    - Microsoft has some of the best benefit package in industry.

    Cons

    - Microsoft seems to be playing catching up in too many areas - phone, tablets, search. It might be better to pick fewer areas and go all in them.
