    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)


    Microsoft is a company which generally empowers employees to make their own decisions and define their own direction. The company culture is great, the compensation and work environment are excellent.


    Over the years Microsoft has lost it's way in terms of strategic direction. For many, the company has layered on too much process and too many metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to what you're good at, and allow employees to make their own mistakes. Too much process, and too many company wide directives, is killing creativity.
