    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - The people you work with are usually good people
    - Free drinks and Starbucks/Seattle's Best coffee
    - Pay is pretty good

    Cons

    - Benefits suck now
    - Company has been going nowhere for over a decade
    - Review system is an abomination
    - If you're unlucky enough to work in the newer buildings, enjoy the moronic decisions to put everyone in open spaces and block off the windows so you can't see outside. If you like working in a cave surrounded by maddening levels of noise, this might be the perfect environment for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How about getting input from the employees before making stupid choices like NO offices for almost everyone? What about asking for feedback on big bets instead of revealing them long after the decisions have been etched in stone and too late to change? I mean really, getting rid of the START button for crying out loud??? Look WAY into the future and come up with something that will actually work and move the stock in a positive direction. Get rid of the completely broken review system.
