    Current Employee - Supply Chain IV in Redmond, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Supply Chain IV in Redmond, WA (US)

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Fantastic benefits package. Competitive salary. Great for women (although I am a male).

    Cons

    Getting too political and slow. Too much talking. In spite of all the work we have done, we do not seem to get the fire on consumers. Stock is stagnant, Redmond centric (50% of work force works there).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get another CEO. if unable to grow, break up the company

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
