Should I work for MS or Google?

A poster at Slashdot sets the forums afire with a simple question: With job offers from both Microsoft and Google in hand, which one should I work for?

The comments are surprisingly thoughtful. This one comes from someone who claims to be a Microsoft employee:

Perhaps the most damning thing I can say about Microsoft is that I always wonder which is the real face of Microsoft, and which is dictated by necessity. Is Microsoft a large corporation that paints a false face of camaraderie and caring, or a fraternal group of motivated engineers who have grudgingly accepted the need for large corporate structure?
