    Current Employee - Software Development Manager in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Big company with lots of different things going on. Lots of smart people working on so many cutting edge areas, it can be very exciting. Windows 8 seems promissing, so does Win Phone 8. Xbox & Kinnect are awesome. Very interesting to see how O365 will grow from here - should be a big success...

    Cons

    Individual smaller team cultures are diminishing a bit as everything in the company is ending up under Office or Windows and being more tightly integrated. This is compounded by elimination of business owners in favor of the 'functional model.'
