    Pros

    Microsoft does a great job of enbracing the extrepreneurial spirit of employees and the company will spare no expense to get employess the tools needed to be successful. However, work/life balance will suffer tremendously because employees are always expected to be on/connected. All in all, Microsoft is a great company to work for.

    Work/life balance at Microsoft is not very good. Employees are expected to be connected all the time and the company does very little to embrace the diversity of hispanic americans and african americans and that fact is underscored but the overall number of hires in those two classes.

    Advice to Management

    Management could do a better job of communicating the truth to employess about the company commitment to family so that people will not be blind sided.
