Pros

Ability to work at a global scale, with the potential to get required resources

Cons

The reputation of having worked at MS is diminishing as they aren't viewed as an innovator. The stock isn't risking, so people work to advance themselves over others as a way to get ahead.

Advice to Management

Lots of big bets going on simultaneously. Either organize and resource to take them on, or try for fewer big bets
