    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, large impact, global experience.

    Cons

    Windows, windows, windows...all rotates around the Windows platform vs. innovating and leading the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bag the horrible review model (MSFT doesn't hire 2, 3, 4 and 5 rating employees so folks hate the label) and free up innovation to compete with Windows.
