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

Pros

Microsoft is a great place to learn a lot of things (mostly on your own) and create a huge professional network that will open several doors. Salary is good, benefits are great. Recent changes in employee performance assessment made it much better.

Cons

Sometimes, narrow minded view of the market from people that had only worked in Microsoft and have no idea how other companies work and how the "real" world is. Segmented groups and lot of competition between teams are currently being suppressed, but has a huge inertia.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring high level execs from other industries / companies to work in pair with current (long term) leaders.

    Pros

    Great place to work, but such a huge company your experience may vary. Great people to work with, most everyone respects work life balance. Great place to develop a career.

    Cons

    Depending on what project you're on can get a bit boring, not as glorious as you might think or what you experience as an intern. Not many options for changing projects like other tech companies might offer. Most people are there for a very short time or a very long time.
