Pros

They do a little bit of everything. If you want to do it, you can probably do it at Microsoft.

Cons

The culture is frustrating, and it feels like the executive level decisions are completely detached from the wishes of the employees at times.

    Pros

    Great company, Good work-life balance, competitive benefits and salaries. Company has a great culture of GIVING to the community.

    Cons

    Annual performance review is based on relative rating with your peers within your team and with your other peers across the teams. Since it is relative and the performance curve is forced, some % of people have to fall in all the buckets of rating(1,2,3,4,5). Due to this, peers don't help each other much which results in lack of team collaboration.
