    Pros

    1. worldwide impact
    2. one actually owns a huge chunk and can work independently. managers are there to guide but not spoon feed.
    3. Excellent benefits (will, until 2013 i.e.)
    4. recognition and benefits from 3rd parties in/around Redmond area
    5. superb campus and facilities

    Cons

    1. does not treat non-MSFT experience with parity. Experienced folks will get frustrated very soon.
    2. compensation is lower than rest of companies in the area.
    3. Avg. work/life balance could be better.
    4. Review system needs to be re-worked. Promotions are often not given due to "promotion budgets". Demotivates high achievers

    Advice to Management

    need to be consistent with levels within the company. It often does lead to friction and demotivation. And no more lingering layoffs, please! Totally creats a havoc on everyone's morale.
