I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Smart people, generally speaking. Good benefits beyond salary. A name people recognize - although not as cool as it used to be.

Cons

Low end of market salary. Work/life balance issues. Absolutely stupid rating/review system. They let, if not encourage many good employees to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Balmer is finally going - although in retrospective - the fiscal performance of Microsoft has been impressive. It has major cultural/HR issues and they have lost sight of what is important - developers and staff that aren't completely self promoting/self interested.
