Approves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great compensation and benefits at every level of the company. Real ethics and integrity. Great support for the employee and the well being of the customer. It's not a soul-sucking money-grubbing hellhole.

Cons

Policies are very strict, and it takes a while to get to know all the rules and lingo, but that's the only real issue. That and fanatics of other tech companies will never stop giving you crap about your company.

Advice to Management

Keep at it. You're doing a wonderful job keeping your employees happy.
