    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Free Health Care (for now)
    Free Drinks in office
    It's cool to tell (most) people you work for Microsoft.

    Cons

    Company is too big.
    To many fights within departments.
    Keep trying to do everything Apple does.
    Run by "business" people not tech people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go read Mini-Microsoft.
    Go talk to real customers...and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
