I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Big company - some teams in the company are doing lots of good innovations like a start up within a big company.

Cons

Big company - the whole employee review system is really bad and it is very subjective.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good physical infrastructure provided by company
    Get to work on latest technologies

    Cons

    Work long hours
    Highly competitive
    Sometimes have to work in not good products like FIM, BizTalk
    Very poor performance evaluation system where bottom 5% of employees are put on performance improvement or kicked out. Another 15% get less than 50% bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are disregarding the bottom 20% of the employees. They do not get much bonus and are insulted within the company both by peers and management. Not good for team work.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    One big happy family with a huge jar of cookies for cookie monsters.

    Cons

    Too much politics and networking, its not about being good, but about looking good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more consumer minded people on board and get the "corporate" people out of the consumer space.
