I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Compensation. Benefits. Work/Life Balance. Breadth of products.

Cons

Not always on the cutting edge. Not as visionary as competitors. Stock performance

Advice to Management

Have a longer term vision. Sometimes we're so focused on holding onto our position in one market, that we can't see another more important market developing

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy to move around and work on different products, learn new skills, etc. Best health benefits I've heard of. Great work life balance - not many people are actually working more than 40 hours/week when it comes down to it.

    Cons

    The company feels stagnant, the days of stock making millionaires is long gone. Not entrepreneurial at all, you are a number.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing tail lights.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    The work-life balance is very good. Team of highly talented people and very casual environment.

    Not much cons. Typical problems that come with really big organization. Sometimes competition can get really stiff.
