    Pros

    If you are delivering on a project that has a measurable impact on the bottom line you will typically be recognized and rewarded for your contribution.
    Many opportunities for success.

    Cons

    Lately politics have become a hindrance, teams often have drastically different resouce allocation. Stack ranking was often inequitable for evaluating eployee performance but I understand that stack ranking to evaluate performance has been replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you are good at and stop trying to be great at everything. Microsoft is great at software, not so good in other areas that really eat into bottom line.

  2. good company

    Pros

    benefits
    work environment
    office culture
    the jobs you do are impactful and noticeable
    shuttles
    connectors
    health benefits
    the people you work with are generally smart. So you learn tons of stuff from other people. There is also a good amount of courses that you can register to get whole lot of information, if you want to grow yourself in your career.

    Cons

    I do like the company.
