Approves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

My boss is completely invested in my future career success!

I feel as though I have been given the tools and support to be successful in my role and leadership trusts that I can run 'my piece of the business' with little interference.

Cons

There is little room for upward mobility where I am located and I am not interested in relocation. *This is due to geography and not really a fault of Microsoft, but I can't really think of any negatives*

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good focus is places on long term investments. Microsoft has all the tools for success

    Cons

    Playing catch up in many areas. Late to the game with surface and phone etc..
    Lots of meetings, many with little action / ROI

    Advice to Management

    Management could focus on driving less meetings, less tiered approvals and greater immediate accountability.
    More focus on customer needs / asks vs. we will build it and they will come. ( Would help drive faster adoption )


  2. "A good place to be, but could be better."

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, work/life balance, opportunities for advancement, passionate people

    Cons

    Lots of reorgs, process heavy

    Advice to Management

    Less reorgs, please. Every time we change management it seems they want to reorganize which causes a lot of productivity loss and disruption.
