Pros

Individual gets an isight into product developement schemes

Cons

Long working hours, No balance between personal and professional life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher Management should not hire the outside guys as managers as they do not understand the culture at MS , By the time they leanr the core values at MS many employees are already gone

    Pros

    Collaborative culture.
    A good start for a new grad.
    Not so bad compensation.
    Seattle is a beautiful city.

    Cons

    Not so clear future.
    Too much competition. After several years your growth likely to slow down and plateu.
    Too much politics. Sometimes you wonder how those people ended up in upper management although theyc annot understand a simple piece of code.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to get rid of some sales and marketing people who has no idea of innovation and get some innovative real technical guys in the upper management.
