Pros

Work/life balance is by far the best reason to work for Microsoft. As long as you get your work done, management is very understanding of the necessity of making sure you dedicate the right amount of time and energy to your personal life.

Cons

Not so great pay for a company this size, weak culture...can sometimes feel "lonely and not welcoming."

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall good benefits, good compensation. A wide variety of projects to work on makes it easier to learn and grow along the career path.

    Cons

    Weak leaderships are very common. Lack of visions and planning. They just can't do proper planning and fast pacing at the same time. Although in general there are a wide variety of projects to work on, few innovative ideas to be implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Be open minded and do planning with a clear vision.


  2. "A comfortable, well-paying, steady job with a couple of exciting teams"

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

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive with Apple/Google/etc
    Work life balance is, from what I hear, better.
    Good job security.
    Seattle is a very cool place to live.
    I enjoy being the underdog. Microsoft hardware is up and coming.

    Cons

    While there are a couple of cool projects, I'm waiting for Microsoft to release something exciting. We have been more of a follower so far.
