    Pros

    The company is full of smart, passionate people. There are excellent benefits, including health and life insurance, health club memberships, and legal assistance. The offices are typically very nice, and the company provides the latest technology for its employees.

    Cons

    The review model creates pervasive fear and encourages dishonesty and unethical behavior by managers and employees. Extreme turmoil and very low morale due to constant changes in org structure and executive management. The bad company reputation creates shame for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drop the review model. It has been universally criticized for many years, and contributes to very low morale. Replace senior executives who don't adopt the One Microsoft philosophy. Get rid of KT.

    Pros

    Lots of activities specially for interns. They give out great intern gifts.
    Depends on your project whether its meaningful or not.

    Cons

    Big company, many levels of management. It's quite hard to communicate or chose what kind of project you want to do.
