    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good balance between work and life, and have flexible work time. In general, it is not busy and good for people who want to work in IT but not keep highly busy.

    Cons

    Too many meetings that do not make much sense. The performance reviewing system is disgusting. There is too much politics in teams.

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

    Pros

    I've been working with Microsoft for almost eight years now, I've met incredible, smart, passionate, hardworking people. The work is challenging, but it also gives you a freedom to choose what role works best for you. The benefits are excellent, overall A++.

    Cons

    The review system is always tough, it's almost the case that you'll have to give your 110% to get a good to great review. It's definitely one of the most competitive companies I've ever seen, though it's also rich in development/support. Managers are trained and rewarded to treat employees well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some layers, be a flatter organization to be more agile.
