    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work-life balance if you insist. Probably not good for your performance review.

    Cons

    - Too many unqualified employees. This detracts from any useful work.
    - Everybody is here for the political gameplay. The idea is to seem like you're doing useful work so as to get to the next step. Doesn't matter who you trample along the way.


  2. "Great company to work in international subsidiaries. Corporate HQ are suffocated by politics."

    Pros

    Great place for starting your career: lots to learn, smart colleagues, great opportunities and huge resources

    Difficult to see direct line between your work and the bottom line (especially at corp.). Too many poor middle managers (group managers, directors, senior directors).

    Advice to Management

    Improve middle management culture and quality!
