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

Pros

Upper management is making big changes to the company that should make it work better than it has in a long time. In June a reorganization was announced that will help teams work together better, and recently the employee evaluation system was overhauled so no longer will individuals be "ranked and yanked" on a forced curve. Both of these changes will help immensely with collaboration.

Cons

There is still lots of work to do to turn the company around. Cash cow businesses are nearly milked out, and there are many technologies that the company needs to mature in order to replace the revenue. Also, there is some uncertainty around who the new CEO will be and what the new CEO will do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep reinventing the company

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    my experiences were limited to working in SQL server only but for almost a decade. It gave me wonderful learning opportunities, friends for lifetime, and options to work-life balance or aggressive work focus - it was my choice and I got fairly rewarded

    Cons

    duplication of efforts, too much emphasis on levels/ promotions, managers have a bit much power - especially old timers.
