Pros

Working for Microsoft is like being in school. Pick any area of computer science and there is someone here working on it. Some of the smartest, hardest working people in the industry. The other great thing is the impact you can have in the world - when you check code into a product you have the satisfaction that it will be used by millions of people worldwide.

Cons

It is a big place and takes a long time to learn your way around.

    Pros

    Core focus on software means there are a wide variety of software jobs available (games, operating systems, database, search engines, etc.). Awesome work/life balance. Most people have a "can do" attitude and get things done.

    Cons

    Pay their employee well but don't expect to get rich. Company is getting huge so there is quite a bit of bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Take bold challenges in new areas.


  2. Great company and environment to start a career

    Cons

    More bureaucratic than a software company should be.
