    Pros

    Lots of different products and areas to work. You can work in industry leading products as well as underdog products.

    Cons

    Slow to react to changing consumer product tastes. Microsoft needs mobile to be hit to guarantee success of Windows and its auxiliary businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Execute faster on big bets and start to rely less on 3rd party ecosystem to fill in the gaps.

  2. Microsoft is a great company to work for

    Pros

    You can find a group that will interest you. There are lots of opportunities within Microsoft. Also Microsoft has great benefits and supports charities and tries to be a green company. You can make a big impact in Technology world and to customers.

    Cons

    I think the review model should be redefined. Having a curve system and stack ranking is not the best solution and it impacts employee's productivity in a bad way.
