    Pros

    Microsoft is an outstanding company to take your engineering skills to the next level. The company has a strong history of hiring competent engineers who are capable of delivering challenging products and services. I have personally gained a significant insight into the Software Development Cycle, product development, and have had an increasing number of opportunities to play a major role at the company. Aspiring employees should learn how to communicate critical feedback and leverage others strengths to help deliver better products for the team.

    Cons

    Microsoft can also be a challenging company to work for. There are high expectations associated with each employee and that they are a supportive and effective team player. It is very common for individuals to work late nights and weekends close to the end of ship cycles.

    Advice to Management

    Continuing to promote from within will help keep morale up and help existing employees see a path for them to climb.
