    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Latest hardwares and softwares provided.
    - Windows phone and surface tablets given.
    - more money to spend on team than other companies.

    Cons

    - Not all teams have work which can be called good. maybe 1 in 10 gets a chance to work in good product.
    - Quantitiy of work is too much(Not quantity), work life balance will get screwed big time.
    - WFH options is not as flexible.
    - Too much peer competetion.
    - Pays good, but not that much to work you ass off all the time.
    - Only old timers keep getting all the hike and bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the Work-life balance better.
    Stop curve fitting, you are loosing too many awesome employees due to this.
