I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Worked with some of the smartest people in the world. Fantastic team, great leadership, terrific work environment.

Cons

too few to mention, it was a great place to work and I enjoyed it until I got burned out on the phones. My getting tired of support calls wasn't a Microsoft issue.

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

    Pros

    - Experience with variety of technology, products, business opportunities within same umbrella
    - Great place to learn about developing large scale software
    - Great salary and benefits - company takes good care of employees

    Cons

    - Some Performance evaluation philosophies are flawed
    - Management is rarely measured for good people management. -good technical folks are people managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Agility of software development hindered by tools
    - People Managers should be seriously measured for people management
    - When products fail or under-perform, it should impact executives who lead it, but have moved on to other jobs.
