    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, passionate people, good career growth potential with international mobility.
    Open and honest feedback depending on your manager
    Huge company with many possibilities, though it is increasingly difficult to change roles within the company.

    Cons

    Constant change in recent years (multiple managers, org names, and bad communication to field teams within my division).
    The changes, and direction of the company are moving in a good direction overall but change management needs a review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to change review system to move beyond individuals and reward (at least partially) teams. The necessity to create 5's and then boot them out does not encourage team work.

    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

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

    Pros

    Flexible and pleasant work environment
    Some great colleagues
    Interesting work and room for growth
    Constant personal development and challenges

    Cons

    As with all large companies, some slow structural processes
    It can be a pressurised environment
    Politics can be rife in certain departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt a review process that does not alwaysdepend on having a % of people scoring low
    Be attentive to bullying and buck-passing
    Try to see things from a customer perspective- a more real world view. MS can be very insular and removed from the Irish business place of SMB's.
