Current Employee - Product Planner in Redmond, WA

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 ManagementAdvice

Stop chasing tail lights.
