Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The brought deadmau5 and Macklemore. Brand new computers and free soda and flexible hours. The perks of the large company are awesome like company events and gym membership.

Cons

Don't pick team/ or project for summer. Most of the products are really boring and as a result the work that they make you do is not interesting.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    So many talents, not much politics as seen in other big companies. Great benefits except no free lunch. Good work-life balance, engineers are supportive to each other.

    Cons

    Company loses its competition for no renovation.

    Advice to Management

    Need fresh blood with good vision.

    Cons

    1. Setting up takes a long time
    2. Has a rep. for being a big company (?)
    3. Can't really think of anything else--my experience was really positive

    Be more available. They seemed too busy.
