I worked at Microsoft full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great Benefits, Good Pay, Challenging, First-Hand Look at new Product, Cool Work Environment

Cons

Management Favoritism, Not about customers, Personal "High School Clicks", Not "TEAM" driven, Over Focused on Sales

Advice to Management

You have lost focus on the big picture. Our Customers. Our store has be come more focused on numbers and driving sales were loosing business. Last I knew employee moral was down and workers were over tired. Regain your focus.

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

    Pros

    You get the updated software and news on IT updates.

    Cons

    The Company does not care about who they lay-off. Not that many ethnic women or men executives. Does not care about it's support staff.

    Advice to Management

    Step up to show that you care about your support staff. I encourage more ethnic women and men executives. Get a heart and focus more on caring.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the top and most influential high-tech firms in the world with prestige, good products/technology, and benefits. It will continue to be a powerhouse and fierce competitor in the market.

    Cons

    Seems to be searching for its vision & mission. Internal ranking system pits everyone against one another with high ranking individuals being well rewarded and low ranking individuals pressured to leave. Ranking system is less objective and more of an art-form and resulting culture is very cutthroat and somewhat toxic.

    Advice to Management

    May want to rethink perspective on the human element and consider the long-term effect of such an internally competitive culture.
