I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than an 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.

    On small teams the forced distribution of review scores seems like madness.

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

    Pros

    Old MS employee always they like MS in old time, but not recently. Thing change and people is leaving.

    Cons

    The great tech was happened before, but it looks like now they more care is review, and review is controlled by small group of people -- leaders. So making good relationship to leader is more important compare with making good product. Tech become a tool, not goal. More and more MS employer start tired to internal political and lost trust to MS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a fair review process may be able to bring the employer trust back, but I doubt if it is possible to happen.
