I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

Pros

You are encouraged to innovate, and be honest with the products and management. All the Ideas I've come up with have been moved around the company which certain feels good to know that they have good eco system for sharing innovation.

Cons

You have to sort through the politics of people approving your ideas and concepts for too long sometimes.

    Former Employee - Supply Chain Manager in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for 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.
