Pros

+ Work life balance
+ Owns entire technology stack

Advice to Management

Thin out the bureaucracy. Have less meaningless meanings. Be more data driven, not political driven.

    Pros

    If you nail your job, you'll have your pick of tough problems to solve. Microsoft is a great company if you can align market realities with your skill set & where you want to grow. Tons of career growth.

    Cons

    If you're not actively investing in your skills you can become stagnant in your skill set & less competitive in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Solve more problems with tools, not people.
