    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    A lot of talents in the company. You can find experts in every area. Clear career development path and training system.

    Cons

    Too many re-orgs. Political game during performance review season. It's basically a top-down decision making process. Sometimes just ignore the voice from our users.

    Pros

    - Experience with variety of technology, products, business opportunities within same umbrella
    - Great place to learn about developing large scale software
    - Great salary and benefits - company takes good care of employees

    Cons

    - Some Performance evaluation philosophies are flawed
    - Management is rarely measured for good people management. -good technical folks are people managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Agility of software development hindered by tools
    - People Managers should be seriously measured for people management
    - When products fail or under-perform, it should impact executives who lead it, but have moved on to other jobs.
