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

Pros

if you're prepared to work like a dog you can definitely go places. there's plenty of flexibiity on hours too but you need to be disciplined.

Cons

work-life balance is almost non existent and it feels as if the organisation is purely scorecard driven now - nothing else matters apart from metrics

Advice to ManagementAdvice

place less emphasis on the scorecard and listen more to the feedback from employees who actually care about the state of the organisation.
