    Pros

    The opportunity to do impactful work that stretches you in ways you couldn't predict exists at Microsoft. It's a big place and your options to work in different businesses locally or globally exist. The smartest people anywhere work at Microsoft and that always makes you better at what you do.

    Cons

    It's a big place and it can be challenging to influence decisions or work cross team. It is challenging to get the right information quickly, you really need a network to get it right and it takes time to build one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Three words: too many reorgs. We need to simmer down and just execute the work. To many manager changes get exhausting and drag down the momentum of innovation teams.

    Pros

    Microsoft has a great health plan, gym memberships and salaries. In addition the extras like free soda, events, etc are top notch.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a place where you can get ahead by doing great work, Microsoft isn't for you since it's all about politics, empire building and taking others down to get ahead.
