    Pros

    When on a good team the sky is the limit.
    401k with matching.
    Volunteer support.
    Good for single people out of college and those just starting families.

    Cons

    Benefits have taken a big hit. Medical has gone in the crapper. Morale stinks in what used to be Live.
    Managers encourage employee backstabbing each other.
    Review system
    Expected to work late everyday and check e-mail from home. Expected to have work e-mail on phone with no contribution to expenses.
    No option to take cash rather than stock. The stock is worthless, why would I want more?
    Not a good place for established families. Lots of age & marital discrimination. A Dev Lead stated that he only wanted young unmarried people straight out of college because he can work them to death.

    Advice to Management

    MSFT is heading in the wrong direction at so many levels. Need to dump the current review system.
    The company needs a hard reboot.
