    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    No limits on how far you can grow. Great opportunity to move from one role to other roles. Stable, meaningful work. You can change the world from here.

    Cons

    Performance review system encourages bad behavior and wastes time. A lot of focus on simplifying for management, not much tolerance for subtle nuances.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the performance stack rank system. Don't fire long term veteran good performers because of where they fall in the stack ranks.
