    I have been working at Microsoft

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Interesting and diverse cutting edge legal work, very collegial, smart clients, decent hours, stock options, beautiful campus and scenery, great local community.

    Cons

    Organization is pretty large and growing, and makes it harder to know everyone as well as in the past. Increasing competition from others also makes life a little more tense and challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing; your employees are broadly behind the corporate strategy and leadership, and depend on your efforts to keep the company competitive.
