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

    The company is very respectful to its employee. No one is expected to work long hours. Everyone has a fair enough chance to get promotions and the compensation is very good. The company wanted to retain its people and has good work life balance.

    Cons

    With the latest trends the company is shedding Test employees and the situation is bad. They could have moved people around but they choose to lay people off. I lost my job in the process as well.

    Advice to Management

    Yes it is a big corporation and yes there is too much process.

  2. Very challenging
