I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Overall it is good to be part of Microsoft. They pay well, benefits are good. Bonus and stock options are also good.

Cons

Responsibility expectation is huge. Recently, they removed the no-cast medical benefits which make all of employees likely take a big cut in their take home salary. 401K match is only 50% where most of the big companies match 100%. Work-balance is always hard to maintain.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the 401K match to 100 %.
