I have been working at Microsoft as an intern

Pros

Working at Microsoft provides great benefits, comfortable work spaces, friendly coworkers, great attention and support to all employees! All part of the companies culture and values.

Cons

There should be a more complete/robust action plan for new interns to find their place inside the company.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health insurance coverage. Capable colleagues. Can get interesting projects to work on if lucky enough. Single window office if you are senior enough.

    Cons

    Lower overall compensation compared to competitor companies. Don't like the review system at all. Don't think the current executives are competitive.


  2. Overall, best job I ever had.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lot of opportunity, challenging work, good training (continuous). Looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    Barely legal rating rating scale. Low level managers are forced to rate on all levels of this scale, regardless of commitment attainment. Lowest scale level is at risk of termination. Right around year 8-9, it is hard to keep your job. If you make it to 11 years, there is some modicum of job security.

    Advice to Management

    Manage, don't dictate. Also, try motivating, not "de-motivating" employees.
