I worked at Microsoft

Pros

Everyone I met over the age of 30 was happy to have an incredibly stable job at a company with excellent benefits and a lot of respect for their software engineers.

Cons

Everyone I met under the age of 30 didn't have anything against Microsoft but was restless and wanted to go do something else with their lives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing in particular, I loved my time there and if you're looking for that sort of stability I can't imagine a better place to code.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    There are some great people at Microsoft

    Cons

    Managment seems more interested in keeping their power than improving processes/Microsoft.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the rule by fear, when the economy turns people will remember the last years.

    Pros

    good place to work as long as you have a good boss

    Cons

    departments and employees are more interested in making their numbers and committments than in doing what's right for the company overall. So this doesn't foster a cooperative environment. people spend an awful lot of time and energy "reporting up" versus doing actual work.
