    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of different jobs
    Great benefits
    Opportunities to impact many users
    Many resources for growth
    Don't have to fear company is going to shut down in a few months

    Cons

    lots of politics that you have to engage in to really get ahead
    review system can be demoralizing -- due to politics
    no matter how great the product, its cool to bash Microsoft. Don't expect the internet world to drool over your work, even if its great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    review system is a pain, often a politically savvy manager can make a big difference

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Microsoft has many products and services that fit different personalities and interests. The One Microsoft strategy should be able to unify these products and services to provide values which our customers really need.

    Cons

    Politics between divisions and groups is just like any other big companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a strong leader who can stop divisions from fighting with each other.

    Disapproves of CEO
