Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Flexible work schedule, good health/Dental benefits. The Stay Fit program is awesome!

Cons

Management is very closed doors. Employees are often left in the dark about goals and project priorities until the last minute. Unless you're lucky to get on a high visibility project career growth is slow.

Advice to Management

Loop in your direct reports so we can be involved and not left out in the cold wasting cycles all the time.

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

    Pros

    Management is really good at allowing you time in your life to get it straight. As long as you meet your commitments there is no real pressure to over work.

    Cons

    Managers are chosen from those who want to be managers and have a good track record of performance. What this means is that you may get a manager who has no experience at it, or is a horrible people person.
