A company I worked at had a scheme where employees could do a salary sacrifice to buy into an MSDN licence. The company contributed the major percentage. I can't remember what type of MSDN licence we had (think of platinum, gold, that sort of thing) but it gave me access to an incredible range of products. For example, I have multiple licences for every version of Win 7, Visio, Office, SQL Server, VS 2010 Ultimate, and so on. It's saved me a wad of money buying those products individually. So, yes, it is worth getting but I suppose it depends on what level of MSDN you buy into.
