    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, excellent benefits, work from home flexibility, supports education advancement, and provides real opportunities for interns.

    Cons

    A evaluation system that used the bell curve, that worked against collaboration and destroyed good solid teams, especially smaller teams that were solid but the mandatory "bottom" level of the curve made a excellent employee look bad, whose only crime was being in a smaller group.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of your bell curve rating with the "chop them off" approach. I was not a victim of this, I quit the company. However, I watched what it did psychologically to others on the team. It destroyed any creativeness, and forced managers to play a numbers game instead of develop people.
