    Pros

    A vast company and a solid workplace to start off with before you move to greener pastures. It was a great company once.

    Cons

    It is only a shadow of its former self. The engineering processes have matured and the rot of excessive management makes it a living hell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please leave and move to other workplaces where you can actually make a difference.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    kind and helpful people, relaxed atmosphere, great perks and benefits, a lot of different areas to work in, company with stable financial results

    Cons

    most positions only in Redmond/Bellevue, because of Microsoft strategy you cannot use many interesting open-source technologies and have to work with those developed in Microsoft, which may not be so valuable if you later want to change company
