Pros

Team work Opportunities for leadership and development Leadership openness and availability to meet Develop technical skills Great people to work with Resume builder

Cons

In busy times work-life balance can be somewhat difficult Mostly contract work, which can be ok for some people but you don't get many of the Microsoft benefits Everyone is a rockstar, so you do have to work hard to stand out

    Pros

    You work with incredible people most of who have tons of integrity Challenging work Still changing the world Constantly get to work with interesting, innovative, exciting technology

    Cons

    Petty politics The yank and rank (stack rank, bell curve) review model Incompetent and malicious managers Most of the good people have left or are leaving

    Advice to Management

    If people really are your greatest resource, you really should treat them better and not make them constantly feel like an unnecessary cost to be managed out.
