    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Progressive company- great colleagues and exciting atmosphere. Many possibilities if you are highly regarded and have a sympathetic boss.

    Cons

    Email culture is crazy. Get the wrong boss and you are in deep trouble. Occasionally can be a bit of a cult. The use of email is also a little crazy- people continue to do it in meetings which negatively affects quality of discussion. There is also an unspoken expectation that you are on line all the time- not great for work and life balance

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Smart engineers, freedom, great work

    Cons

    Few really bad managers who are non technical and don't value good work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Few really bad managers who are non technical and don't value good work.. think middle tier test managers who have been around way too long.
