Good benefits.
Pays is good.
If you stay long enough you can get your own office.
Can work with some very smart people.

Quality of management can vary from team to team.
Don’t expect to use many non-microsoft tech.

Advice to Management

Ship more products faster. Get rid of the dead weight.

    Pros

    I'm definately proud to work at Microsoft. I feel that I have a great work life balance, a manager interested in my career growth and access to the latest and greatest technologies.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be tough to ramp up at Microsoft as it is a somewhat complex organization. Each division/group tends to be siloed, so I don't know much about other groups at Microsoft besides my own.

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to see us take on some of our competitors (Apple) in the mobile and tablet space more aggressively. I also think our marketing teams could do a better job of educating consumers on the cool features of our products.
