I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Camaraderie and strong structure. This was a very fulfilling place to work. It was awesome to see the Kinect ship. I obtained incredible independence.

Cons

Constantly behind schedule and over budget throughout the entire cycle added a degree of stress to the process. Oh well, PMs, what are you gonna do?

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Free sodas, fairly flexible schedule

    Cons

    Extremely dysfunctional company with lots of fighting between departments. They promote an environment of hostility and encourage people to go after one another - "survival of the fittest". Only the favorites are promoted or recognized for their work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and start over.
