No opinion of CEO

I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The pros are a great diverse environment for exposure to different cultures, fast moving projects and focused individuals.

Cons

The cons are incompetent managers who are ruled by greed and fear.

Advice to Management

Microsoft used to make the best OS and was fun, exhausting, and brilliant environment. With the 400 levels of management introduced, everything grinds to and incompetent halt. Test your new hire managers. Some of them are "nice" but dumb as a stick. And try to not sell your soul just for a terrible product. ; )

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

    Pros

    100's of millions of users and a chance to make an impact and across a broad range of software that makes the world run. Windows, SQL, Azure, Office 365, Exchange - it's the way business and governments get stuff done. The stuff we do here matters!

    Cons

    100's of millions of users who depend on you not breaking stuff but not to worry we still have Xbox and other outlets for your agile and creative energy.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping looking to the future!
