    Pros

    You work with very smart people The benefits are excellent and HR does a lot for you There are many interesting projects and there is great opportunity for mobility in the company Some people thrive at Microsoft, others don't. It isn't for everyone.

    Cons

    Projects often fall victim to politics Planning changes too frequently as management is in constant flux Too little attention is paid to user-centric design. Somehow groups of great individuals become terrible teams at Microsoft. Individuals can often gain greatly at the expense of a project or team. Very hard to be entrepreneurial. Great if you can follow the crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Test users outside of the Redmond area Don't change direction every six months Not everything in the world happens in Redmond Listen more to your business partners, don't always take control
