Pros

Worked with some of the most intelligent, driven, dedicated people i've ever had the pleasure of working with. Pushed me to grow and get better as a designer, and as a team mate in general.

Cons

Required to give it your all, work long hours and keep up with the competition. Potential for burn-out.

    Great Benefits smart people to work with.

    Too many meetings, still using waterfall methodology for software development. Terrible review systems.

    Pros

    CSS is the best organization in Microsoft to work for. Lots of opportunity, friendly people and minimal politics.

    Cons

    I miss the sense or ownership and continuity that I had a development lead.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the culture of CSS to the rest of the company, particularly the product group.
