Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Humble, always questioning ourselves. Continue to be surrounded by some of the smartest people one will ever meet. Diversity is strong across most groups, leads to a well rounded approach to customers/products. You build a career here and are constantly growing vs. 'getting consumed and burnt out' that is becoming so common for other companies in the Seattle area.

Cons

Underdog in many markets these days, frustrating to read tech press and be faced with constant bias and 'uncool' campaign. Looking forward to the day when the facts win out.
