No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Flexible hours and smart passionate co-workers. Many different products and markets to choose from. Allows for work/life balance.

Cons

Competitive. Can eat up all your time if you let it. Low regard in blogosphere.

Advice to Management

I'd like more cross organization transparency. I understand what happens in my business unit, but don't know why other business units make the decisions they do.
