Pros

Working at Microsoft gave me a pretty good experience that you could get a chance to work with one of the brightest people.

Cons

Some business owners that I know doesn't know much of what they are doing, they are simply doing what they were told to do any never try to drive the overall growth of the company

Advice to Management

I think this reflect to my cons of working at Microsoft, I don't think everyone is so bright as you think and a lot of people are simply sitting on their ass and collecting salary. I think a business person needs to know a bit more about the technical side, as same as the enginneering team may want to know a bit more on the business side.

    Career might get stuck after 3 or more promotions - competition is pretty stiff in getting promoted after the first two promotions and a lot of people don't make it to the fourth promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus on more agile management practices - each division should operate like a seperate company and employees share the profit that their division makes.
