Pros

At Microsoft Corp, many jobs are completely unique. This is great if you have a strong personality, work well with others, and can define your own work around what's best for the company.

Cons

There are good managers and bad managers within Microsoft. If you have a good manager they will support you and help you develop professionally and find rewarding work. If you have a lousy manager, you very likely won't last in the company... But they will.

Advice to Management

Do more to evaluate the managers. Be willing to get rid of bad managers, because they have the power to make entire workgroups unhappy.
