    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Microsoft is the greatest company I worked for, best prodcuts in class and great vision. unfortunately a few managers can turn the company in a place you want to escape from.

    Cons

    - lack of value in the job - lack of alignment with the local OCP teams - lack of vision - no chance of moving to a more snr role as there is no added value that the current role could bring to another team/department - manager has a complete luck of management skills and if you dont agree with him...good luck. - compensation is not revenue based but you are still required to forecast ect when the only thing your direct manager cares about is his viability - it will be sold to you as a senior role.... - no change to make any money in this role - deeply political and toxic at times

    Advice to Management

    - start hiring competent managers who care about the team more than they care about themselves.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Learning to collaborate with diverse teams and the training thats encouraged. Excellent solution, partners and branding also.

    Cons

    Some managers are not suitable for inside sales and appear to be the completely wrong fit and offer no direction or guidance on how to be successful in role as they don't know themselves which is damaging to peoples careers. This is wrong and very disappointing to an otherwise great Company!!

    Advice to Management

    Address management issues at all levels.
