Pros

Microsoft remains to be one of the best technology companies on the planet focusing on producing software. Company culture is revolving around people, customer, business, and technology. Priorities may be unbalanced in some teams, but in general they are right.

Cons

Some platform technologies produced by the company are loosing the world dominance, while still remain very capable. But this reflects on what transferable skills one can gain in the company.

    Pros

    Ambitious goals, smart people, high standards.

    Cons

    Highly political, expect a reorg every 6-12 months, and always keep your resume updated in case you find yourself unexpectedly laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on a long term plan rather than bright shiny objects and constant re-orgs.
