    Pros

    Awesome work-life balance. Great flexibility as long as you are getting the job done.

    Cons

    Things move slowly working through the bueracracy can be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    AT the end of the day someone needs to take ownership. The matrixed org is a great concept but it often can result in a lack of accountability.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    People are smart, benefits are just amazing, the spaces that Microsoft plays in are challenging and have plenty of problems that are enjoyable to tackle.

    Cons

    Projects are never "agile" in nature, at least not anything in Windows. The review process has undergone some churn over the years but I still don't feel it is accurate of the effort that has been put in. High turnover in management only compounds this problem.

    Advice to Management

    You need to get the young blood to stay at the company. Seek out the high performers and give encouragement to all young employees regardless - you need them to stay there to build this culture and stay on top.
