Pros

Flex schedule and ability to work remote. Management understood employees had to balance family and work priorities. This varies by group.
Good medical benefits: was 100% employer paid but that has changed now.
Opportunities for growth and advancement within the company.

Cons

Forced stack ranking of employees penalizes managers with high productive teams and creates environment where their is internal competition within the same team.

Advice to Management

Eliminate the stack ranking of your employees. Employee focus should be on how to gain competitive edge on Microsoft's competitors and not within the organization.

    Pros

    Fun projects to work on, exciting new things happening and always encouraged to be innovative. Always something new happening.

    Cons

    Some people aren't fond of the performance review system here. It can make you a little paranoid, but as long as you are doing your job, you should be fine.
