    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Everyone is all about technology - it's in their genes, it's in their water and food. Excellent grounds for innovation. Gives an opportunity to someone to interact with the worlds best and finest. Of course, you'd expect nothing less of the company that has built software that runs the world...and continues to do so.

    Cons

    Lackluster compensation plan, outdated performance review standards and a fiercely competitive environment make career growth almost impossible.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Hyderābād (India)

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

    Pros

    Breadth of technologies you can work on, good resources, good salaries and benefits, good development centers in many cities, smart peers

    Cons

    Too much internal fighting, more competition with folks inside rather than outside, too PM focused, weak leadership promoting mediocre culture, too many non-code writing folks creating useless processes to prove their worth in-turn slowing down the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promote false sense of success. Promote leaders only on producing actual business results, reduce number of PMs and make the company more dev centric which is how Google, Amazon, Facebook and other companies are operating.
