Microsoft is a great place to work, but it's a very, very big company.

Pros

For all the bad raps Microsoft gets, it still changes the world. There are few places where the things you work on have a bigger impact. On top of that, great pay, benefits and working conditions.

Cons

The company is very large, and navigating the organization is complicated.

Also, the company faces some serious competitive and strategic challenges to its core businesses.

    Pros

    Lots of brilliant people around
    Lots of problems to work on
    Wide array of technogies
    The management is generally good and fair in assessing people in performance reviews. I like the review and evalutation system at the company and the focus on getting things done.

    Cons

    The competetion hampers some information flow. An attitude for getting things done and strong interpersonal skills are as important for growth as technical skills. This can be viewed either as a pro or a con depending on who you are.
