    I worked at Microsoft (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Full freedom to work from anywhere, even from entirely different continents.
    - Lots of exclusive access to Microsoft products long before they release
    - Good work life balance and pay
    - Good community

    Cons

    - Microsoft as a business has been making poor decisions for the past few years in terms of software development, games and marketing.
    - Was let go abruptly without warning after studio was shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the industry as a whole and find opportunities rather than promising to catch up on lost opportunities. Entire studios could have been saved.
