    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Very smart people
    - Good culture
    - Generally very good compensation, but not the best in the industry
    - Ability to change teams within Microsoft every 2 years (depending on good performance)
    - Lots of different teams all with different ways of operating, and work environment - feels like lots of little companies under a big umbrella (not sure if this is a pro or con)

    Cons

    - Smart people tend to be not too social
    - Can get comfortable
    - Lots of long-timers make the company feels like the government
    - Top-down direction (depending on your team)

    Advice to Management

    Replace the review system with something that the employees will approve of.
