Pros

Salary, benefits, opportunities for career growth. Numerous businesses means great opportunities to explore different technical challenges.

Cons

Office politics, stack ranking review system, you're a tiny piece in a massive machine, seems to always be playing catch-up w/ the technology innovators

    Pros

    Started at the company at mid-point in my career and continued to work as an FTE, CSG and vendor for over 20 years. Now that I'm taking roles at other small companies I can see how lucky I was during my time at Msft. The interviewing process results in the hiring of some of the smartest people in this field. The education level, drive to succeed and mutual respect between colleagues is not standard practice at smaller companies in the U.S. If you're a current employee, value what you have and realize it's not like that everywhere in the business world.

    Cons

    It's become a big corporation that can no longer turn on a dime. Performance reviews are top of mind for too many, rather than building and shipping fantastic products.

    Advice to Management

    Split the company. Get more visionaries at the top, rather than corporate moguls.
