    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent work flexibility. No need to do 9 to 5. What counts is getting the job done (come in at 10 and finish at 8).
    Bright, passionate people.
    I know many ex-Microsoft people who have regrets about leaving.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy but senior management is aware of it. A lot of initiatives exist to improve it. For such a large company, the level of bureaucracy is comparatively low.
    Image problem (somewhat unfairly) - not seen as cutting edge in comparison to Google.
    Old-timers don't quite fathom the hyper-competitive pace of competition and what we need to do to stay on top.

    Advice to Management

    Remove non-performers.
    Make personal commitments more transparent.
