I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great access to mentors, coaching, training, talented people. There is a fair and equitable bonus structure and access to benefits across the board.

Cons

Politics and opinions can hurt you on occasion, they do sometime let poor management make poor decisions and support the managers over the teams. Like any office, politics are there. Even if people know you do great work, if one person has a poor opinion you can sometimes be shunned unexpectedly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be open minded that people don't always see eye to eye but that doesn't mean insubordination or the inability to be managed or trained. When someone gets top marks for performance and has a great track record, examing the one blip compared to the whole picture would be welcomed, as it may be just a conflict of personalities. A lot of good people are painted with the wrong brush based on opinion and not facts.
