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

Pros

vast resources - human and monetary, small team atmosphere (most of the time), there is a process involved but if you can dream it up -MS can make it happen, excellent salary/benefits package.

Cons

As with any large organization there is a fair bit of politicking going on and the old (and not so old) boy network is very strong. You will be expected to sacrifice everything to deliver - maybe not a con for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Probably time for some new blood at the top in several areas.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Decent company

    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are some good people in the company. Good technologies, good products. And the benefit is good (although it is going downhills). Flexible work hours as well.

    Cons

    Things can get fairly political from time to time, e.g. promotions, go/no-go on projects, etc. And I don't believe some managers are competent.

    Pros

    Good people, great benefits, amazing breadth of technology, one of the few places where you can literally change the world.

    Cons

    Has gotten very big, difficult to navigate the organization at times, review process is an artifact of bad 90's thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New review process that actually encourages teamwork and group achievement.
