Pros

Very good working condition, smart people around me and they are very helpful and friendly. Also resouce is plentiful at Microsoft.

Cons

Sometimes it takes meeting after meeting to make a decision when it requires running lean and agile. Also, HR people are very hard to deal with.

Advice to Management

The company should really be running a lot leaner and relocate budget on the projects that will yield the most benefit to the customers.
