    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    * Tons of chances to learn advanced technologies
    * Free tools for software development
    * Lots of perks
    * Great People

    Cons

    The downside is management changes a lot, if you get a bad manager for you it can really hurt. This happens to a lot of people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No one is happy with the review system. The fact that a great team is forced into a curve is just silly.
