Current Employee - Program Manager II

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Management is really good at allowing you time in your life to get it straight. As long as you meet your commitments there is no real pressure to over work.

Cons

Managers are chosen from those who want to be managers and have a good track record of performance. What this means is that you may get a manager who has no experience at it, or is a horrible people person.
