Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great teams full of bright people. Leadership knows what they are doing. Free drinks and discounted lunch is nice to have available every day.

Cons

Can be a little bureaucratic, sometimes hard to make progress because there can be a lot of inertia to overcome. Perks and pay are not as good as other companies in the industry.

Advice to Management

Improve perks to be more competitive with other companies in the industry.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft still has some characters with bravado, but more and more people are truly caring about what the customers need rather than career ladder climbing.

    Cons

    There are still times when lack of focus/coordination causes us to not deliver all that a "one Microsoft" vision could provide. This will come in time under Satya Nadella. He is amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Satya, it is OK to be more forceful in changing the way this company works.

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

    Pros

    Great work environment. Excellent benefits. Fun place to work

    Cons

    You can't like every one you work with. Hopefully management likes you or else you're not getting anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor your store management better. Pay more attention to the other people who work there, they have stories to tell that may get you to realize that your choice in management may not have been the best one.
