I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Microsoft has lot of opportunities. It's still a relatively good company to work for. There are a lot of high revenue products. Very nice people in my team.

Cons

Seems people are not really working on innovation and working. But rather we tend to spend a lot of time discussing and triaging.

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of benefits, the whole summer is pretty much dedicated to ensuring you enjoy yourself. People are relatively helpful to interns and there are a lot of opportunities to learn new things and talk to experienced people.

    Cons

    A lot of times the bureaucratic nature of the company can get pretty frustrating. You can spend a lot of times waiting around for something to be authorized or for something to be reviewed and you can waste a lot of time.

    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.
