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

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

    Pros

    -So many brilliant individuals
    -Constantly improving its HR processes and personnel review system
    -Executives listen to employees
    -So many great businesses to work for, if your tastes change wrt the type of products or technologies to work on it's very easy to move between products or business groups
    -Is in the process of redefining itself and it's focus on devices and services
    -The engineering teams have a good focus on product quality
    -Satya as CEO

    Cons

    -Like any very large company there can be some bureaucracy that slows down the engineering teams
    -The company as a whole can be slow to change, though smaller businesses can usually respond to market changes a lot more quickly if they don't have a dependency on a slower business group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Continue the mission of focusing on devices + services
