    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good compensation and great benefits with access to amazingly knowledgeable people.
    Great facilities, college campus like setting.

    Cons

    You have to pay the devil to work there. Evil stack ranking. Narcissistic leaders with little to no ethics are far to easy to find. Retribution is practiced regularly. Simply the most political corporate environment I have ever worked in with the lowest regard for ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a leader has no ethics, take them out of leadership.
    Oh,and get rid of Ballmer. What a disaster.
