    Pros

    You can choose to have a great work life balance; great place to work for people who are sick of moving around and are looking for a convinient , comfortable life style.

    Cons

    - Stagnant
    - Work place politics
    - Incompetent , unimaginative leadership.
    - Customer comes last, boss comes first.
    - Low hiring bar for top management
    - Steve Ballmer alomg with his team of marketers and salesmen.
    - No passion for technology
    - Performance comes last in product development. Feature creep done for empire building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Ballmer; get a techie to lead the company.
    Your boss might determine your pay but our customers pays for all of us.
