    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Always lots to do, can be as good as you make it.

    Cons

    Impressive inefficiencies, constant churn, powerpoint culture,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow processes and strategies to mature for at least a year before changing things, the constant churn is exhausting.

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

    Pros

    I love working at this company. It's one of the best companies to work for. You are treated with respect and I've been across two business lines now. Many things to do outside of work and the product discounts are fantastic. If I have it my way, I'll retire from this company!

    Cons

    Not many that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more feedback in to up and coming products from all the employees before launch.
