    Pros

    great place to work, people are nice, you get access to all the software you want. we have a great library. You work with some of the brightest people I have ever meet. You get free drinks, we have company sponsored trips, the mangers have a fun budget.

    Cons

    you work all the time, but it's fun, but it's all the time. as with all companies you have people that have big heads, There is have’s and have’s not’s, have people that have been with MS for years and they have a lot of stock. MS is in a place that the people that have been there a log time are getting pushed out.

    Pros

    Tons of product areas at this company so you can easily find the group which suits you the best. Xbox games, MSN, Windows, SQL, Visual Studio, Home Entertainment, Privacy/Security, Entertainment, Autos, Mobile, etc, etc. etc.... I've worked at Hewlett Packard, and Google, and have friends at IBM and Intel and nothing beats Microsoft in this regard.

    Cons

    You need to be in Redmond for maximum visibility within the company for promotions, and Redmond is COLD and RAINY all winter long... We seem to be growing a little too fast lately. 40,000 in Redmond is a bit too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, lets buy Yahoo! asap...
