"MSN (part of Microsoft) was a good company to work for at the time. The pay and benefits were great - free soda for everyone! But, MSN really lagged behind other portals at the time in terms of innovation. Great place to get some experience, but it's dangerous to get too comfortable and stay there for long. Long-term Microsoft employees are seen in the same light as college students who take 10 years to get a degree."
