    Pros

    MSFT comes with a well known name and is respected for its hiring of talented people, the benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Review and compensation system, poor managers - MSFT assumes all people once they've reached a certain level are suited to managing people. There are more bad managers then there are good ones. Work/Life balance is a joke! Corporately they really do mean well, but too many managers don't live it and want to get the work done any way possible instead of pushing back on upper management about the feasibility of getting the work done in a specific time frame.

    Advice to Management

    Only have people manage other people if they have proved they have the skills to actually manage other people. Push harder on managers to ensure there really is a work/life balence.

    Pros

    Pay, Benefits, Training and Vacation.

    Cons

    Some of the commitments are a waste of personal time.

    Advice to Management

    Remove commitment like participate in Microsoft Technology communities. After putting in 40-45 hours a week and then the training required every quarter there isn't enough time for family because of the commitments like the one stated before.
