I have been working at Microsoft full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great culture. Great coworkers. Its a job where I look forward to work. Can't say that about most jobs. My coworkers make it fun.

Cons

Stressful at times. But this is true of most jobs. Sometimes you just need to take a nice break and give yourself some time to relax.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get on the same page. Sometimes management is on different pages its sometimes hard to know what's going on.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - good overall deal

    - smart people
    - great atmosphere

    Cons

    - red tape
    - upper management disconnected from employees
    - lack of grand vision so it's hard to map ones job to the company bottom line

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about real problems to solve instead of lots of disconnected cool features that seem interesting in a ppt presentation
