    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Managers and people are helpful - Managers willing to discuss career options - If you can handle it, people are willing to give you a lot of responsibility - Good for self-directed workers

    Cons

    - Many staff try to offload work onto you or leverage you - Contract staff do not usually have a clear path transitioning into FTE (Full-time employee) - Many people leave early due to the poor contracts, constantly losing experienced employees and replacing them with new staff - One person may carry too much workload

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Microsoft is a good place to learn. It is big enough of a company where you can move around for a position you truely enjoy and have passion in. In general, people change role in 18 months. You can move up, across, etc. I have changed job three times in the last five years. Alhtough I am not getting promoted everyt time. I do feel that I am changing for the better. The review system is fair and "make sense". Some people complain that it is too competitive but I think it is a good way to weed out people you don't want to work with anyway.

    Cons

    Microsoft is too big and not nimble enough. It missed tons of opportunities when they could have been catpured with the right vision and priority. It seems like we are always following and not leading.
