    Pros

    This company has good work experiment and the salary there is also very high. Workers there are very nice and your mentors can teach you a lot of useful things not only in the coding area.

    Cons

    I don't think there is any downsides to working for MS, because I stay there not very long and what I met there are all awesome.

    Cons

    Management slow to change, the review system has to go, poor alignment between P&L's and SMS/G.
