    Pros

    Microsoft offers comprehensive training right from the start, so it is a great place to hone your knowledge and skills of not only Microsoft products, but of the dominant products in the industry. Microsoft Unified Communications software is excellent for employee to employee communications, and internal efficiency.

    Cons

    Microsoft has yet to invest fully into China, so you are still working in a developing country. The office environment was bland, and Chinese regulations can be tough when it comes to heating and cooling. You boil in the summer, and freeze in the winter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clarify your business model so it is can be understood by all.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    In Microsoft, one can always get to use the most up to date techniques, which is great for gaining useful experiences, and build up resume. As a matter of fact, one could use all Microsoft products for free, and therefore gaining experiences without have to buy them. The company also offer good benefit plan, good administrative aids. Free coke, pool and foosball. Free Xbox games. (But no free Age of Empire... )

    Cons

    Despite the great company value and culture, inexperienced management could result in bad practices which make every one suffer. People get less freedom to do different jobs they would like to try.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the employee, recognize their contribution.
