    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very smart, mostly nice folks to work with. Great benefits and women in IT programs. Microsoft is established so while the workload is heavy, it's not usually crazy.

    Cons

    Politics can take a lot of time to resolve. Way more overhead than they need - it can get in the way of delivering on time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce management overhead and get rid of all the unnecessary overhead and fiefdoms. Just remove roadblocks so we can focus on delivery please!
