    "Bloated bureaucracy. Opportunities to shine, but too much politics. Old Microsoft will never allow change."

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Stability. Opportunities to learn and change jobs.

    So risk-averse it hurts. Leaders are old-timers living in the past.

    Retire and let the people who haven't made their millions yet do something to move the company forward.
