ProsWide range of interesting products to work on, lots of opportunity for real impact, plenty of smart people who fuel innovation.

ConsToo big for its own good, opportunity for impact stifled by bureaucracy and politics, for every smart person... there are plenty of bullheaded, egotistical managers who think they've got it all figured out.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet focused on what Microsoft really is about and align your teams so they're not all undermining each other.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
