    If you're not a "native" MSFT employee, not so great. My company was acquired by Microsft

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of resources.

    Cons

    If you are not considered one of "their own", you are not treated that well, even if your talents or skills are better than some MSFT employees. Seemingly lots of opportunties to move within the company, but it's not that easy and you pretty much have to know other people on other teams to make that happen.

    Your other employees are bright, enthusiastic and driven to change the world. Benefits and perks are outstanding, including healthcare, time off with pay, software discounts, pay scales and bonuses.

    Cons

    Review model makes this a place where only the most agressive and competitive can suceeed.

    Advice to Management

    Drop the review model.
