    Pros

    Professional development resources, you own your career and where you want it to go. An amazing employee match program for charity in your community. Tremendously smart people and so many different technologies to be interested in.

    Cons

    Incredibly competitive, so collaboration hasn't been deeply valued. Easy to get so involved you lose your sense of work life balance. And sometimes, you can get lost in all of the groups/technologies/boundaries.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, work/life balance. Lots of seemingly "intelligent people". Playing catch up can be fun. Game Dept. is the best to work at.

    Cons

    Shark tank. Contractors and blue-badgers, fighting for the scraps mentality as Microsoft slowly sinks. All the really Talented People already left. Ranking Review's leaves everybody always at each others throats. Looking for ways to degrade you. It's a bad environment for Innovation. The really nice people end up leaving due to the aggressive, competitive nature of the environment. Intellectual bullies. Lots of bureaucracy to deal with. Stratification. Contractors are treated as in the same category as Janitors, for the most part. Windows Team people are the worst to work in. The mentality wreaks of obsolescence and nazi camp work ethic. One of the Indian Program Managers raped a janitor in building #27. ( Windows Group ) Buildings 25, 27, and 28 are toxic, and so are most the people. Windows Group harbors obsolete mentalities that need to be flushed out before they destroy Microsoft from the inside. In building #26 the Automation Group consists mostly of Senior Citizen like people; old, grey-haired, fat, unhealthy, resource hogs, that are on the edge of retirement. All the good people have left, or purposely forfeited their jobs in lieu of better offers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the Ranking System. Fire yourselves and get open-minded people with vision, innovative forward thinking, diverse mindset, that hire diverse people.
