"I've worked at Microsoft for about 20 years. It's a great place to work. Sometimes the employees are too smart - they forget that most customers could care less how smart you are or how hard something was to implement; they just want something that works. Interview process can be frustrating (personally, as well as trying to recruit others). Solving theoretical problems quickly has way too much leverage over hard-won practical experience. But many tech companies have that problem right now."

"I worked for Microsoft since 2000. I've seen them struggle, I've seen them fail, I've seen them succeed. Microsoft is a good company to work for with plenty of resources to help you succeed in your career."

"I worked for Nokia for over one year. Excellent environment and compensation. Once Nokia's mobile division was acquired by Microsoft I only had the chance to experience it for a short time. It felt as a very different company culture though."

"I worked at Microsoft for 20 Years. It is all I really know. I was laid-off with 18,000 other positions. It is a scary world."

"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."
