No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Microsoft hires the best and the brightest. Your colleagues and co-workers will challenge and inspire you.

Cons

The former review system resulted in an inability for teams to work together and led to unnecessary drama and challenges.

Advice to Management

Now that the review system is being changed, evaluate employees on their contribution to the companies success, rather than a random assessment of their "potential".
