    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free soda. That is about it.

    Cons

    Poor management
    Low salary
    Seems to hire 70 % of their people as contractors
    If you think out side the box, then you will not succeed at Microsoft

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, please keep tabs on what your managers are doing. More than once highly competent people leave the business because their managers are not competent for their roles. Many of them try to protect their own jobs by putting down innovation.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
