I worked at Microsoft

Pros

smart people to work with and it is free to do what you like and can do research on popular tech

Cons

Cannot make real code but only ideas and demos. Microsoft is not good at internet dev. I don't like to work under windows.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leader is nice in Microsoft, not that tough. But they are push, you have to finish and implement your ideas very quickly.

    Pros

    Health benefits are good. Reputation.

    Cons

    Upward mobility, senior management, politics are horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more willing to take chances and make hard decisions. Don't play it safe all the time. More rewards and recognition for middle management.
