    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great top Management with a growth mindset (Satya Nadella).
    Investing a lot in R&D.
    Building up experienced sales team.

    Cons

    Middle Management only average and MSFT hasn´t gone the full way of Transformation of being a leader in terms of innovation and agility.

    Advice to Management

    Educate middle Management for a growth mindset. Set Targets properly for sales so that cloud Targets are realistic. Motivation was reduced for many employees in the last years through inacceptable und unrealistic goal setting which was executed by M1 managers that are not best in class, only average.
