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.

  1. Good for learning/building industry experience after graduating from school, but not as competitive as other companies.

    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.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flex schedule and ability to work remote. Management understood employees had to balance family and work priorities. This varies by group.
    Good medical benefits: was 100% employer paid but that has changed now.
    Opportunities for growth and advancement within the company.

    Cons

    Forced stack ranking of employees penalizes managers with high productive teams and creates environment where their is internal competition within the same team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the stack ranking of your employees. Employee focus should be on how to gain competitive edge on Microsoft's competitors and not within the organization.
