    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    The benefits are very good. The pay is very competitive and the products are top tier that provides a significant amount of value to our customers

    Cons

    The politics at MSFT are over the top. Microsoft is more about looking good to your peers and managers rather than taking care of you customers. Beware of the politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have less focus on employee reviews.

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

    Pros

    Highly intelligent employees
    Complex cross functional work environment
    Good salaries

    Cons

    Company continues to be late to market in key areas of the industry
    Lack of a coherent long-term strategy
    "Performance" redefined so that solid employees now being managed out with little to no cause

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in external executive talent into the SLT (suffering from "group think")
    Abandon the performance attrition policy that is jeopardizing the long-term market differentiation in Services
    Bring back a more competitive benefits package
