    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid company with good benefits. Excellent products and partners.

    Cons

    Company has become so large, and managers are extremely competitive, that it no longer provides an environment to share ideas or build a sense of community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When looking for Managers, hire only people who want to manage people. Then allow them to manage without all the internal meetings.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Meet smart people, build skills, good pay.

    Cons

    The company is shrinking number of products, while the decision making is being centralized for each product. This means no growth opportunities, and super internal competitiveness. Lots of "politicians", hard to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get the senior people who have been there for awhile to move on. They are typically politicians and not leaders (its not like anyone has shipped a great new product in the last ten years.). And inject new blood to change the culture.
