    This was the most political company I have ever worked. It is not about what you do, but who you know.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a positive brand on your resume and the benefits are good

    Cons

    very political, very bureaucratic, back stabbing, no strong leadership, they kill creativity and innovation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of the politics and reward people based on what they really achieve and not based on their political capabilities/visibility

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

    Pros

    At this branch office: pay is great relative to peer companies in the area; employees are very intelligent; and site is driven by strong engineering-focused management team.

    Overall, great place to launch a career, but move out quickly or you will find your industry relevant skills diminish.

    Cons

    At this branch office: very limited opportunities, highly cut throat competition, and insanely poor work\life balance. Jobs are limited to only 1 team at this office.
