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

    New CEO, New vision, new attitude. The company is moving forward and the direction seems good. People are energized again and walls between groups are coming down

    Cons

    Deep in the throws of change, going to take a while to settle out. As vision turns into team and individual goals there's a lot of churn and false starts. The re-orgs will be good then they're done, but right now many people are running scared

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be clear about short and long term vision
