    Pros

    Microsoft is a company with dominant market share in the computer industry, financial resources to fund long-term investments and very strong research and development teams. This enables it to enter adjacent or related markets in search of growth.

    Cons

    Middle management at Microsoft is short-sighted and overly reliant on inefficient processes and metrics that do not contribute to the company's long-term success. Talent and teamwork often take a back seat to politics as the people who get recognized or promoted are often the ones who play the "game".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a long hard look at your employees and separate the real contributors from those who just talk a good game.
