    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You get to work on good algorithms and loads of perks.

    Cons

    Annual review process is not good and it bitters your relationship with your peers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the annual review process and just see how one performed rather than doing the stack ranking.
