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

Pros

If you nail your job, you'll have your pick of tough problems to solve. Microsoft is a great company if you can align market realities with your skill set & where you want to grow. Tons of career growth.

Cons

If you're not actively investing in your skills you can become stagnant in your skill set & less competitive in the market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Solve more problems with tools, not people.

    Pros

    This is a very inclusive and rewarding place to work. Great benefits and positive direction of the company.

    Cons

    Employee calibration model creates negative behavior and squashes creativity/innovation. Often feel like you are pitted against your peers to rank a good performance review since you are calibrated against peers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the current calibration model to cultivate creativity and innovation.
