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 Management

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.

    Pros

    a. Smart people. b. Lots of resources for, say, computers or other equipments. c. Very visible, everyone knows about Microsoft.

    Cons

    a. Compensation is below average. b. Layoffs are always looming. If you're over 40 years old be very affraid. c. Review system is just another name for "friendship ranking". d. Constant reorgs mean constant resets of career paths. e. Now with benefits downgrading (medical benefits will have deductibles, just like any other), MS became even more ordinary. f. Flat stock price. g. There are smart people in other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. In any other company, 10 years of agonizing flat stock would be more than enough to cause you to "dedicae more time with family". Since you've transformed MS into "just another ordinary company", you should be treated as such and be expelled.
