    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Microsoft is a wonderful company to work for. The people there are intelligent, passionate and the culture is open and encouraging. The solutions and products really do make a difference to the people and businesses that use them. The risk/reward culture encourages innovation and exceptional efforts.

    Cons

    Work life balance can some times be a negative factor, but Microsoft allows and coaches to manage the balance that works for the individual. For a technology and solutions company they have systems and tools challenges that really impact their business. Change also seems to be a constant and many employees are saying that we should give new business models more than 6 months of run time before we judge them success or...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in people. Continue to foster the Microsoft culture of risk/reward. Invest more in systems and tools. Allow new business ideas/processes enough time to prove themselves.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Ability to travel around the world and take on jobs in other countries. Ability to really learn how the software and high-tech industry really works.

    Cons

    It has become beaurocratic. Don't necesserily hire the smartest people anymore. No longer a culture of sharing and debate. It has become a place of cry babies if they don't get their way, especially developers who think they are smarter than they really are.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of the senior managers as they are hanging on to old Microsoft views that are no longer valid in the market place. Still is an old boys network of "who's friends with Steve and Bill" get the promotions.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexi-work hour, work life balance, smart colleagues, good technology and infrastructure with decent pay outs. Sucking up brings you around. That is about it.

    Cons

    Retrenchment is very normal, people are more self centered, human resource department is known to be horrible and incompetent. Sucking up to bosses bring you benefits.

    Advice to Management

    You should lower your base pay and bonuses
