    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great medical benefits, stable environment, decent salaries (relative to peers/competitors). The brand name can help with furture employment. Cost of living in the Greater Seattle area are reasonable.

    Cons

    Too much red tape and internal politics at every rung of the corporate ladder. Decisions are made in an extremely slow and inefficient manner (even relative to other Fortune 100 peers).

    Advice to Management

    Learn from your recent miscues when it comes to hiring senior level management (Presidents of Divisions & SVPs). The unprecedented levels of churn at these levels don't bode well for Microsoft's future.
