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

    Pros

    I have a nice mentor when I worked in Microsoft Research Asia. The nicest part is that I have a lot of freedom to work on what I am interested in, not his requirement.

    Cons

    MS Research Asia only has strong groups in some area, but not my area.
