Proswork with some brilliant people
people see it on your resume and think you know all
FANTASTIC health and benefits packages

"Working at microsoft is like highly paid grad school"

Consvery demanding of employee time, often not respectful of work/life balance
"reorgs" are a routine and often pointless or net-loss game of management musical chairs
can be difficult to navigate within such a huge organization
