    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work and culture is awesome. If you are someone who values quality work and enjoys responsibility, no better place to be.
    Employee benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Low and mid-level management are seriously useless. You can cut at least 2 managers out of 5 in a group.
    HR is totally invisible and of no use at all. They are in tie-ups with Management for performance reviews. Instead of empowering and helping employees, they side with the management and are of little use to an average employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company wide vision and direction is good. The road ahead is tough but MS should stick to the tough choices they've made and success will come in the near future.

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Open ended about ideas, there is no strict hierarchy of employers - free to talk to anyone we want and seek their advice. Good work environment and not a lot of pressure

    Cons

    Some projects may be a little unstructured in the beginning, but a little dedication will get the most out of them. Salary might be less for some (in India)
