    I have been working at Microsoft (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Few companies have such a breadth and depth of offerings that impact the world of consumers and businesses globally. This means lots of opportunities to do exciting things and have a fulfilling career at Microsoft.

    Cons

    The culture internally is being forced to change.The messaging is good however the experience of the message is yet to been felt/seen. A lot of people had little positive to say about the prior model because it forced a gladiator set of behaviors against your peers and friends. Know that these behaviors are conscious and will need time to change with the culture change being advocated.
