Pros

Polishing your analytical thinking. Extreme attention to details. Building consensus.

Too much inward thinking. Company is not in touch with the industry as much as it should be.

Advice to Management

More focus on Silicon Valley. Redmond is not where the industry is being shaped today...

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good paying job, lots of good peers, lots of work to be done, profitable company, nice area if you like the outdoors...

    Cons

    ....but, if you're in the top of your field, Microsoft is definitely not the place to work anymore. You won't get the necessary opportunity to stand out.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that Windows and Office are on their way out and start taking real risks with your products. Put top people behind the initiatives.
