I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

A lot of variety in the things you can do, this compay had hundreds of teams working on hundreds of different products & services from healthcare to education to automotive to games. The fun never stops.

Cons

A large company means things flow top down, means a lot of teams to coordinate with, means cost cutting, means beaurocracy and less autonomy. There is still the old-boys club mentality though it is slowly changing. Not very many women at the top, especially in engineering.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

telecommuting is the future of tomorow's workplace, and a great way to save.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great working environment and benefits. People are treated well and with respect.
    Contrary to some of the comments I think the senior management has done and is still doing a great job leading this company in the direction we need to go, in this extremely competitive industry, constantly looking ahead and shifting course/gear as needed.

    Cons

    Being a mature company some of us may be complacent?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow innovation, innovation, innovation!
