    Pros

    Great Benefits, Outstanding Executive Leadership Culture #HitRefresh and Growth Mindset are affectively executed at that level. Dynamic and full of opportunities to grow in knowledge, accountabilities and career.

    Cons

    Corporate politics from previous Eras are still around. Some mid-management (Directors and Group Managers) has difficulties dealing with change and effective transformation. Poor emotional intelligence. Sharing information, opportunities with your peers to grow great ideas is not in everyone's agenda. Non health competition may be an obstacle to execute great ideas and make things happen.

    Advice to Management

    Emotional Intelligence, authentic grow mindset, Directors and Group Managers across Operations, Sales, Marketing to eliminate corporate politics. Promote healthy networking and cross-group collaboration.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to be a self start, not micromanaged. Best job ever. I loved the people and especially my work as a sSr User Experience evangelist.i even loved my managers in my DX role.

    Cons

    The company is so big that it is hard to network with other UX professionals and to get to know the different positions available to me or how I might find that. Its very difficult to find the correct job posting. I would prefer people reach out to me.

    Advice to Management

    In my consulting role my first manager was awesome. She really helped in anyway she could. The one that replaced her had a unique way and was not a subject matter expert as the people under him. In my next role in DX (a sales division) I loved all my managers but there were a lot. I think I had 4 in 4 years

    Pros

    Advice to Management

    Cloud is the future and we re taking the right decisions to make sure we have a competitive advantage, laser focus on innovation. HR should have a more prominent role supporting employees.
