Pros

Though Google, Apple and others are in the news more nowadays, Microsoft is still the number one. The integrity, honesty and inteligence of the people who work there is of the highest caliber. Its a stable, rewarding and innovative company to work for.

Cons

Most often you dont get exposure to other non-MS technologies. You will have to put in extra effort to keep yourself uptodate.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the classic silos - dev, test, pm; and instead, go back to the feature crew model and include service engineers and ops to work alongside dev, test, and pm in small teams to be more agile on software delivery as an online service.

    Pros

    They build interesting products, and you learn basics fo product development there. But beyond that the folks are too argumentative and interested in self-promotion.

    Cons

    harshly aggressive and competetive to the point of being mean.The management wouldnt hesitate in harming if it meets their ends

    Advice to Management

    Create a more people friendly culture, the current review and salary system is broken and encourages people to leave at the earliest
