    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Some ridiculously smart people
    - Passionate people who have lives outside work
    - Industry leading benefits

    Cons

    - Process heavy, can be worse depending on your team.
    - Slow moving even in areas where they cannot afford to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of excess fat, a lot of folks are 'resting and vesting' without adding value to the company, and end up discouraging the truly talented folks.
