    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice environment for engineer like single office/liberal enough for discussing engineering topics even with outside working group.
    Variety of areas the company covers give employee for choice on internal transfer.
    Work life balance is enough good for those having kids.

    Cons

    Review system is bad. There is bunch of tools, but still not much transparent, and room for politic to step in.
    Compensation would not be much competitive with other top it companies. Even worse, famous health insurance coverage will go away from 2013.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up good work.
