No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The benefits are amazing at Microsoft, and are not something you will find anywhere else. Annual reviews make sense and correlate with the goals you set with your manager. surprises are a rare occurrence. Growth opportunities are endless.

Cons

Each business group is different so you can run into politics. Policies don't always make sense, or appear to be unnecessary red tape. Because each business group is different, there can be communication barriers between each of them. This isn't always the case and can certainly be overcome, but it is present as in any other company.

    Pros

    Great potential for massive impact across industry and world. Amazing peers (for the most part). Great resources to do what you need to do.

    Cons

    Too much insider politicking. Way too many people who just care about themselves--not enough focus on external competition or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Don't waste time in internal competition and weird politics--focus on shipping innovation, fast. Get the politicians out of Microsoft!
