    Pros

    Work-Family balance; campus lifestyle; Business casual and most of all benefits of cutting edge technologies and employee benefits and incentives.

    Cons

    many re-orgs and moves in short time-frames and roles can be swapped or shuffled around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain long term employees or vendor staff that have earned skills on the team instead of replacing new staff as years of experience with tools/technologies cannot be replaced.

    Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upper management is making big changes to the company that should make it work better than it has in a long time. In June a reorganization was announced that will help teams work together better, and recently the employee evaluation system was overhauled so no longer will individuals be "ranked and yanked" on a forced curve. Both of these changes will help immensely with collaboration.

    Cons

    There is still lots of work to do to turn the company around. Cash cow businesses are nearly milked out, and there are many technologies that the company needs to mature in order to replace the revenue. Also, there is some uncertainty around who the new CEO will be and what the new CEO will do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep reinventing the company
