    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great products and services in their suite.

    Cons

    Has completely lost sight of its original vision and goals. They actively refuse to hire from the outside and instead lean on shuffling their current people around. They hire contractors to do most of the actual work and let their FTE's take all the glory. This is NOT the Microsoft of the 80's. You are better off, if you're talented at a smaller, newer company.

    Advice to Management

    Infuse some new talent into your ranks and stop hiring from within constantly. There is so much dead weight to lose! You need outside talent to make this company strong again.
