Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Big company which means you have a lot of support to get things done

Cons

Management is out of touch with the changing landscape of open source, and internal tactics prevent good collaboration/teamwork.

Advice to Management

You have done a good job getting rid of stack ranking, now make it a good company by fostering an environment of teamwork.
