    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company spirit with space for questions, learning and development; Free breakfast, great colleagues and various events going on during the year. For a big company, it is good to have such a horizontal structure. Regarding the company, it is very hard to have a complaint.

    Cons

    Some roles are very specific (due to the sheer dimension of the company) and may thus feel redundant; People feel drawn in by the name and end up staying because of it, regardless of their affinity for a particular role.

    Pros

    Great Company, results orientated and performance oriented Market leader and highly innovative Always seeking to transform and adapt for improvement Very inclusive and great place to work

    Cons

    The huge overhead on the Areas, between the Corp and the subsidiaries, demanding and creating more reporting and consuming a lot of resources, without adding value for the final results

    Advice to Management

    Create a more knowledge organization, with more empowerment on the Subs, and Areas with less "fat".

    Pros

    Benefits; Education; Access to information and technology

    Cons

    Performance Reviews ( a joke); Difficult to progress if you don't have the "right friends". If you are there for more than 10 years, prepare....your performance will drop even if you get your goals and so :-)

    Advice to Management

    Try to look beyond the numbers. Companies are based in relations and people.
