No opinion of CEO

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!

    Steve Ballmer needs to retire. Company needs to become competitive again not just a cash cow

    Bring in younger progressive VP's to lead MS into the future. It's time to dismantle the old boys club.
