I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

* Flexibility
* Great team
* Great people
* Nice offices
* Great perks
* Lots of potential and career opportunities

Cons

* Too many people in team
* Responsibility is too scattered, more responsibility should be placed on the individual so they are more accountable

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make smaller teams, give people more responsibility. There are a handful of people that do not do much in the team.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Work with lots of smart people. Work on products that are visible to millions of people. Great brand recognition, which is good for your career as a whole. Great benefits and a flexible work environment.

    Cons

    The company is huge, and inevitably this makes it slower than smaller companies. Despite best efforts to remove unnecessary process, there's still a lot of necessary process that comes with writing software that ships to millions of customers, which reduces perceived agility within the engineering team. Vertical career advancement opportunities are slow to develop.
