    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Stack ranked review system. Constant peer competition, and not collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the review process. Period. It used to be the benefits that lured people to MS. Now they’re comparable to all other big companies. Nothing special about them.
