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 worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Excellent pay, good benefits, and free sodas.

    Cons

    Upper management rarely concerned with projects or teams.
    Right hand does not know what the left hand is doing.
    Large, bureaucratic organization that moves at the speed of continental drift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what's going on in your own department and stop worrying about your career or your house on Orcas Island for 10 minutes.

    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.
