I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The overall culture & values is amazing. It is for sure one of the best places to work.

Cons

There is a lot of competition between employees, and sometimes people coming from other companies don't get the competitive culture right away.

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

    Pros

    Huge amount of choice. Tons of jobs across the company. It’s hard to get bored with some many interesting projects available. Smart people. In general there are really smart people to work with – especially in some areas. Whatever your passion you can find some way to be involved. Whether you make it part of your job or just take advantage of the groups and resources. It’s up to you to make your career what you want it to be. This one can be seen as a pro or con.

    Cons

    Some inefficacies that come with a large company. Imperfect review model, but really there are few that are great. Not all groups are that great to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Explain the why regularly.


  2. Great company - needs more innovation, more diversity and a better review system

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

    Pros

    Smart folks, great health club. Decent pay.

    Cons

    but culture undermines innovation and new products ala tabletPC. Can require a long commute due to high cost of homes near campus.
