    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    1) Good number of Product Groups, you can move around and have varied experience
    2) If management likes you, you can grow faster

    Cons

    1) There are Politics
    2) There are backstabbers
    3) Your loss is someone else's gain. And review process vouches for the statement made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Better policies in place needed
    2) Direct Manager has a great amount of say and that needs to be minimized

    Recommends
    No opinion of CEO
