if you can work 10-12 hours everyday on regular basis - you can grow easily. Forget work-life balance!!

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

Some really smart people to work with. If you work really hard and can prove yourself - you will be rewarded very well. But you need to be on "core" projects - that matters most to your group.

Cons

For working mothers, hard place to grow and keep balance between work-family. Extra hours put in close to any sort of release ( 60 hours/week ) is normal / expected but not rewarded. Amibition + hardwork is not enough - you need to be aggressive as well.
