Overall I had a positive experience. The work experience gained is invaluable.

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The company is large and diverse, meaning that you have a lot of opportunity to work on what you really like, all the while maintaining the same benefits and compensation.

Cons

One downside to Microsoft could be that it is a large company. If someone prefers a small feel, Microsoft does not offer this.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The stack rank system is self destructive. I have heard it is being phased out, and I believe that this will minimize internal competition.

    Pros

    The real software company who has the full products line. Great developer culture.

    It is too big to move agile. Sometimes it needs catch up the cut edge trend like search, cloud.
