I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

One of the best reasons to work at Microsoft is the health benfits package which is compelling in contrast to other corps.

Cons

One potential downside working at Microsoft can be the amount of red-tape politics, in conbination with carrot and stick management style

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Something that would really make a difference and perhaps re-invent Microsoft would be for it to Think Different, embrace change pro-activelly move beyond the typical catch up game and really lead the market.
