I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

Microsoft still has some of the smartest people around; I'm constantly amazed at the quality of employees.
The benefits and pay is pretty good; benefits are starting to decline.
People expect big things from Microsoft and there aren't many companies in the world that can deliver the types of products and services that Microsoft does or could do.

Cons

Bureaucratic- it has gotten more political every year and that often gets in the way of getting things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

flatten management, make roles more defined and keep groups from starting up duplicating functions

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Excellent, nurturing environment. Varied talent pool, a chance to work with the best minds of the industry, competitive compensation structure.

    Cons

    No real cons to be made an issue out of. The system takes a bit of time to weed out the bad hires that make it in, but its only because of the sheer size/ growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More variety in work items, business leadership out of India, Move more Senior talent to India with competitive offers, expand to other cities.
