Pros

Diversity and openness about the overall strategy and departments in the company. Brilliant and experienced people

Cons

Very limited knowledge of things happening outside Redmond. Very laid back attitude and innovation is dead

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Strive for innovation and take risks if you want better opportunities.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Good people to work with
    Managers who tried to help my career (not always skilled at doing so)
    Good work life balance
    a chance to work on products that many people will use

    Cons

    very Redmond centric, I was at a small office and we were less important
    too much overhead, too few developers managed by too many
    you have to sell yourself and your accomplishments to get ahead
