Pros

Great compensation and benefits at every level of the company. Real ethics and integrity. Great support for the employee and the well being of the customer. It's not a soul-sucking money-grubbing hellhole.

Cons

Policies are very strict, and it takes a while to get to know all the rules and lingo, but that's the only real issue. That and fanatics of other tech companies will never stop giving you crap about your company.

Advice to Management

Keep at it. You're doing a wonderful job keeping your employees happy.

    Pros

    Very smart, mostly nice folks to work with. Great benefits and women in IT programs. Microsoft is established so while the workload is heavy, it's not usually crazy.

    Cons

    Politics can take a lot of time to resolve. Way more overhead than they need - it can get in the way of delivering on time.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce management overhead and get rid of all the unnecessary overhead and fiefdoms. Just remove roadblocks so we can focus on delivery please!
