I worked at Microsoft

Pros

Working at Microsoft gives great benefits, a great work atmosphere, and great technology to work on in a wonderful climate.

Cons

Being a large company could present downsides against innovation and having power in expressing your ideas. Microsoft does a lot to address solutions to overcoming its big company atmosphere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Microsoft has great products but they are sometimes not marketed well. Much has been done in this area over the past years, but this work could be continued.
