Good tech company

I worked at Microsoft

ProsMicrosoft is one of the companies in the leading edge of technology, so you get to try out the softwares internally before it is released out to public. Has great health benefits. Working environment is pretty flexible.

ConsWork life balance is a hard thing to maintain. It all depends on the team you are working in. But it is managable if you work it with your manager & team.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership team needs to focus on grabbing new market in the first place rather than follow another company once they have already taken the market. Good job with the Kinect!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
