    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company filled with smart people, provides a good opportunity to learn things. It exposes you to very large scale systems giving a good understanding of the scalability issues.

    Cons

    Would be confined to microsoft technologies, with very little exposure to open source stuff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love to see more contribution from Microsoft to the open source world as well as use some of the stuff available.
