    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft has recently become a more exciting place to work, perhaps due to involvement in the devices area and getting closer to the consumer space. It is good we have the company stores.

    Cons

    Too many meetings and it takes long to get to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the frequency of bonuses (not just review time, but when individuals accomplish something special at any time of the year)
