    Best thing: the flexibility! To choose health plans, health and fitness benefit option, etc.

    Good work-life balance, excellent health and retirement benefits, including "stay-"fit", optional and inexpensive life and disability coverage as well.

    Overall great benefits package.

    Excellent coverage on health insurance. However the recent introduction of Health Savings Accounts (HSA) has made the claims process much more difficult than it used to be.

    The medical coverage is very generous - That's the best thing. The worst thing is the lack of notification from the benefits system on the pending dues on the medical bills. Twice this year I received pre-collection calls for the bills which were due after insurance payout but never showed up on the insurance sites.

    The variety of discounts offered at various outlets

    Microsoft has the most comprehensive benefits package that I have seen from any company so far. Microsoft has used its influence as a large company to get discounts for its employees from a large number of other companies; the trick sometimes as an employee is finding out about them.

    The Out-of-pocket medical expense is a bit high, although it is claimed to be lower than competative companies.
