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

    Pros

    Global footprint, aggressive competitor, variety of markets, every role in tech is available at Microsoft.

    Cons

    The review model and often too much MBA-type theory and measurement happening and not enough action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's time to kill the forced bell curve in the review.
