I have been working at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Interns are very spoiled at Microsoft. We get lots of free stuff, and plenty of opportunities to have fun and enjoy Seattle.

Cons

The culture could be better in the office. The drink selection is much better at competing companies. A lot of legacy code.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Very smart people
    - Good culture
    - Generally very good compensation, but not the best in the industry
    - Ability to change teams within Microsoft every 2 years (depending on good performance)
    - Lots of different teams all with different ways of operating, and work environment - feels like lots of little companies under a big umbrella (not sure if this is a pro or con)

    Cons

    - Smart people tend to be not too social
    - Can get comfortable
    - Lots of long-timers make the company feels like the government
    - Top-down direction (depending on your team)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the review system with something that the employees will approve of.
