    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great scope of problems to tackle, compensation is very competitive, benefits are comprehensive. In general, the company has enormous resources to actually, truly change the world in many meaningful ways - it's just a matter of the company not getting in its own way and allowing its talent to thrive.

    Cons

    The review process fostered competition instead of collaboration, depending on the group, the politics became intrusive, work-life balance was hit or miss. It largely depends on the group(s) you end up with, but the process is pretty universal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster collaboration instead of competition. Let people and teams solve problems instead of fighting for territory.
