I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Microsoft helps you create solid impact around you. You can change people's lives by providing a better technology. Just look at what they have done with Windows 8 - completely reimagined the OS from chipset to experience.

Cons

I don't see a big con working for Microsoft. It's a great company. May be it can provide more growth options for the senior people.

Advice to Management

Ensure somehow the sentiments are positive and stock goes up..
