    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people - Dev, Design, QA, and PMs were outstanding. Highly collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Too many layers, too much bureaucracy. hyper competitive environment - at times people worried more about reviews and managing up than the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't follow the competition. Agile development works.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work with very smart people.

    Cons

    Not all but there are few arrogant people in almost every team to work with. Group may be good but cross-team collaboration render into problems.
    Heard the medical benefits have gone down the drain.. Very poor.
