    I worked at Microsoft for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - good salary - exceptional team - respected company - work flexibility / work from home - good bonuses

    Cons

    - work is so fragmented so that one cannot focus on anything important - managers have been stripped of power to make decisions, so there is no-one with decision power to talk with - organization spends more time on politically and financially optimizing decisions rather than taking company forward - resources as spread ridiculously thin - up to a point of failure - increasing number of invented reasons... preventing people from doing their best, such as hiring/promoting female candidates or school hires instead of merit, internally invented compliance procedures, etc. - lots of issues that can only be discussed in private - there is nobody to talk with from management. Everyone is under same pressure and do not have power to change things - lots of burnout - some incompetent and abusing managers are keeping their positions

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics of management. Its very well known under what conditions people perform best and are most motivated. Its really sad to see so much talent wasted because of management / organization failures by design. Return at least some decision making to countries / managers. (To keep review anonymous I didnt write my true city of employment)
