Chance to touch the future in a rewarding environment, but a review system that is like "Corporate hunger games"

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

Amazing career options for anyone, the ability to be deep (or not) deep in technology, making a difference, smartest people around

Cons

Management slow to change, the review system has to go, poor alignment between P&L's and SMS/G.

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

    Pros

    - great folks - everyone is smarter than you and friedlier then you
    - great benefits/work life balance
    - "cutting edge"

    Cons

    - making industrial impact required lot of buecracy-managment skills

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have difficulties to make an industrial impact (some kind of cultural imparity between MSR and core MS)
