Pros

Access to the latest and greatest technology and being part of a company that impacts the world. Your passion for technology can impact millions of people. You can do your day job, then follow your passions to add value to virtually any other part of the company that you have an interest in.

Cons

Microsoft's internal environment is too focused on internal politics and climbing the corporate ladder than it is on the technology and truly helping customers realize their potential. Career growth opportunities are limited if you are not in Seattle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fix the review model. Separate Individual contributors from management rankings. A director and a senior level technologist should never be in the same stack ranking. They perform two different roles that are vital to the success of the company and the recent changes show that the company values the middle management more than the individual contributor that is out in the trenches making the middle managers successful.
