Current Employee - Director in Singapore (Singapore)

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

Pros

Passionate people, huge scope, broad set of types of jobs available (location, function, product line, etc.), giving spirit started by Bill Gates but still reflected today.

Cons

Process has become heavy, internal struggles among the top-most leadership have worn thin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember that building and selling IP is still first and foremost about the people - the brain drain and stories of mistreated people have become the rule and not the exception.

    I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Microsoft Research has many brilliant researchers, great technologies and innovative ideas; you can learn a lot. The culture here is also great, people are willing to help each other and share their thoughts.

    Cons

    Microsoft is too large; hence a lot of time is spent on communication between groups. And since too many smart researchers are here, it would be little harder to get promoted.
