Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

MS is a good company but hire wrong people. Work hours are flexible but not suitable for certain countries/City.

Cons

Senior management has no leadership and very obvious in certain countries. Staff has no working discipline. Late for customer meetings. Need to stop that Microsoft-ego! It's not as good as you think.

Advice to Management

Major management revamp esp in APAC. It's not about Steve, some employees just need to be fired!
