Approves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft as an intern

Pros

They give you a coding mentor who will help you when you're stuck on a problem.
They provide lots of opportunities to network with your higher ups.
They give out an Intern gift every year, usually one of their latest products (like the Surface Pro).
They increment your hourly wage each time you come back as an intern.

Cons

You're expected to do a lot of self learning as your mentor will likely be very busy with his/her own projects.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Some businesses have great potential
    - Challenging problems

    Cons

    - Company was positioned to own mobile, but mismanagement let Apple take it away
    - Stack ranking encourages selfish employee competition rather than team success
    - Benefits are declining: health/dental now have a 2.5k deductable

    Advice to Management

    - Don't miss gigantic business opportunities: e.g., mobile
    - Change culture so employees focus on business success not their fiefdom
