Pros

Treat us as if we are adults. We own our success, or failure, at Microsoft.

Cons

Sometimes ambiguous targets. i.e. sometime we are not provided enough clarity about what or how we are measured as employees.

Advice to Management

Get the stock price moving. Reward you top performers. New rating system 1-5 appears to reward top performaers at a rate less than last year: fix that!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You are given the freedom to succeed or fail on your own. Mid level management is usually very lax and supportive of new ideas. The problems are diverse and challenging. The salary is good for the area and the benefits are great (for now).

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless. They don't understand technology or how to run a compnay.

    Advice to Management

    Resign.


  2. "It was a great learning experience."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The benefits, salary, and advancement opportunities are great. Employees are financially sound and can move around to experience various jobs.

    Cons

    A more diverse corporate culture is needed. Diversity needs to be appreciated at the company. Also, employee recognition and advancement should be based on how they perform their jobs and not other reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Be the voice for your employees, especially when dealing with upper management. Encourage young employees to grow and recognize them when they are successful.
