Pros

The company offers good salaries and a good benefits package. It definitely looks good on your resume if you decide to leave. You work with some very intelligent people who are passionate about the company and its products.

Cons

The downsides are pretty standard for any huge corporation. Lots of Microsoftees are pretty "religious" about their products and often have a hard time accepting that the IT world is a big green garden where different types of flowers can flourish without interfering with each other. The small Austrian subsidiary was suffering from poor executive management, which caused many good employees to leave.

Advice to Management

Senior Management needs to get out of the vicious circle of favoritism. It is quite frustrating to see friends of friends taking key positions while truly competent people are being left behind.
