I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Smartest group of people an any company. Diverse, caring, professional, people do what it takes to get the job done. Not afraid to switch course quickly.

Cons

It is a large company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to not be compared to Consumer Companies such as Apple and Google. Enterprise is a completely different market.

    Re-look at the performance management system
