Pros

Microsoft is a company that takes on numerous big challenges. If you are highly motivated and like the big spotlight this is a great company. Microsoft also has extremely diverse employment opportunities. Movement to different positions seems to be encouraged, which is great because if you desire a career change, you can likely find it within Microsoft.

Cons

Management is often out of touch and tends to make poor decisions as a result. Microsoft is a large company and there are organizations within that suffer from poor morale due to bad management.

    Good place to work for and has great benefits.

    Cons

    Culture is aggressive and sometimes destructive. People don't help each other, but that is slowly changing with the new ways of the review system. Will take time but there is hope.
