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

    Pros

    Working from home definitely makes it easier to balance work-life, especially if you have a long commute or a family that demands much of your attention.

    Cons

    Sometimes upper management gets annoyed by the empty offices during the day, even though the work is clearly getting done. The review process can be cumbersome, and even though you may have exceeded all of your goals for the review period, you just can't expect management to rate your performance fairly. It all depends on your manager, and whether or not he/she'll stick his/her neck out for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees, Recognize the sharp, hard-working individuals, before they go find another gig.

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

    Pros

    MS takes care of its employees, and encourages you to move around to try different roles and teams. Benefits are great. You get a great sense of security at Microsoft.

    Cons

    If you want to make money, then Microsoft is not the right company. The pay is not as competitive as other well settled companies in the bay area. Sometimes you get frustrated thinking that MS is always catching up to competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable more innovation and agility.
