Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Worked with some of the most intelligent, driven, dedicated people i've ever had the pleasure of working with. Pushed me to grow and get better as a designer, and as a team mate in general.

Cons

Required to give it your all, work long hours and keep up with the competition. Potential for burn-out.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn for a junior software engineer at Microsoft. It's perfect place to learn about the full software development cycle. There are plenty smart and bright senior engineers to learn from. Benefits are good for people with families.

    Cons

    It gets more and more difficult to learn any skill out of engineering domain after a few years. Top-to-bottom work assignments occupy most of the time. There is not a lot of city life in Redmond, Washington. There are a lot of choices for outdoor activities though.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more creativity
