Cons

Tough to achieve a perfect work life balance,massive organisation so often difficult to navigate the organisation - still some siloed working which holds some of the major projects back.

    Pros

    Good brand, good salary. The work life balance is very good too. It's a great place to build one's career. I would highly recommend.

    Too much politics. The senior management has an evasive attitude and do not take responsibility.

    Pros

    Your Growth pretty much depends on how you drive it. Great people to work with. Lot of sincerity in the company.

    inter group relations can be better. Short term contributions seems to be valued more

    Advice to Management

    Look for long term value. One Microsoft is way to go. Invest in once microsoft vision sincerely and value all aspects of work (dev/test/pm) equally.
