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

Pros

Great company; Think of something in tech, and there's an opportunity here for you. New energy in company as it embraces cloud. Firing on all cylinders!! The company mints cash!

Cons

You have to be in Redmond to move up

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of non-technical, middle managers who are trying to build personal kingdoms and just want to have a shiny title and collect a sizeable paycheck.

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

    Pros

    Numerous choices of technology / areas to work with, super smart co-workers, continuous learning opportunities, greater community participation / volunteering opportunities, flexible hours, diversity and excellent benefits for employees and family, great schools around for kids.

    Cons

    Slow adaption to change, process overhead (review, release, chain of command), growth slows down beyond certain level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce management hierarchy, reduce process overhead (reviews specifically), adapt to the change and bring accountability to each product teams.
