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

    Pros

    Microsoft has some challenging work, and you are typically working with really smart people.
    The benefits are quite good and they have paid holidays.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the stupid stack ranking - if you hire great people to begin with, you shouldn't have to get rid of 5-10% each year. Time will tell if the changes recently implemented will actually filter down to the individual contributor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that people are your greatest asset
