    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Challenging environment, much to learn, room for advancement, pay is average, superb benefits

    Cons

    dog eat dog culture, they stress collaboration, but not fully felt to be true. stack ranking system will always render someone to be on the bottom, regardless of how good they perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clear idea of who you are, what you are good at, and stop mimicing everything your competitors do. You have lost your identity and have a "me too" approach to everything. Maybe you don't see it, but this is how the common everyday person sees it.
