Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great products, awesome team. Real smart people.
Products have gigantic user base, very rewarding to see your work being used by so many people

Cons

Need to be more agile. Use existing tools instead of trying to build everything, more efficient that way. Concentrate on software development processes/documentation also.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, access to some of the best resource you can imagine, great benefits

    Cons

    Like any other big company MS has it's share of bureaucracy, process overhead, reporting overloads. Managers make a huge difference to your career

    Advice to Management

    Cut down the barriers. People spend too much time creating reports for the management. Establish simple and nimble measurement systems.
