Pros

Great benefits & pay. You get to work with very smart people, many have unique backgrounds and interesting hobbies. Opportunity to work on interesting projects and learn new skills. Great training programs to continue education. Work can be challenging and push you to do more. I'm glad that I have had the experience to work here.

Cons

Lots of re-orgs and movement that can disrupt work. It is difficult to work cross-team or org. Can be a bit of crony-ism in management. Sometimes hard to feel like you make a big difference in such a large company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep focused on the cloud, enterprise, and big-data systems. Trim the fat and get more focused on the business side.

    Pros

    Great people, great diversity, inclusive culture, and opportunity to work on latest technology makes working at Microsoft wonderful. Microsoft provides a ton of extra perks that I have not heard any other companies to provide.

    Cons

    Microsoft needs strong leadership to deliver great results that it is totally capable of. Unfortunately, MS is follower of its competitor and its strategy is mostly driven by what others are doing and try to catch up for the most part except in few areas where it is leader.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Microsoft needs selfless leaders.
