    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well rounded people. Driven, collaborative, visionary people. The overall employment package is great too.

    Cons

    Big company. Hard to make things move as fast as you may like. On the other hand, if you are able to make things happen, you'll be a hero.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing a great job. Try to stay aligned to the top leadership to help Satya have the impact he needs to.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Large company good processes, good benefits for families. Still makes a lot of money. Provides a stable job with not much to worry about

    Cons

    Microsoft is no longer an innovator in the tech space and seems to be playing catch up in a lot of the sub-spaces, e.g. mobile.

    Advice to Management

    Need to modify the stack rank. Many people are in situations they can't control and as result don't rank so high. Less middle management

      Negative Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Very smart group of people, interesting trechnologies and center of PC business

      Cons

      Stack ranking in a very arbitrary way ruins the experience. You can find yourself in a no win situation for no apparent reason other than your position within the company. You can do a great job and still be ranked last especially if your group in general is high performing

      Advice to Management

      Drop stack ranking policy

      I worked at Microsoft

      Pros

      Incredible benefits, smart people, collaborative environment, strong support, committed leadership. Microsoft was the best place I have worked so far in terms of personal learning and opportunity

      Cons

      Worked a lot of hours. There were times when deadlines did not make sense or were moved without consulting the project team

      Advice to Management

      Apply more agile methodologies to increase project efficiency. Cancel earlier in the project when needed. Sometimes projects that are failing continue on too long
