    Worked at Microsoft Research in China. The company knows how to provide a great work environment. Excellent help from co-workers too.

    Perhaps better coordination between team members. I really can't think of anything else.

    Pros

    The company culture was fun, coffee was great and you could talk and collaborate with numerous world-class researchers in machine learning, algorithms, networks, and so on. My boss was extremely knowledgeable and always open to new ideas. The pay was more than enough for me.

    Cons

    Cambridge is a rather small city and housing is expensive. Also, the jobs in research can potentially have less security as they are the first ones to go if the company is in trouble.
