    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    benefits
    work environment
    office culture
    the jobs you do are impactful and noticeable
    shuttles
    connectors
    health benefits
    the people you work with are generally smart. So you learn tons of stuff from other people. There is also a good amount of courses that you can register to get whole lot of information, if you want to grow yourself in your career.

    Cons

    I do like the company.

    Current Employee - Senior Test Lead in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    Microsoft has a diverse environment that enables someone to develop a broad set of skills. There has been a culture of actively helping engineers develop deeper skill sets.

    Cons

    The environment in Microsoft is very aggressive and people with similar roles are actively competing against each other. The recent re-orgs (7/14) have been very disconcerting since employees aren't sure when the changes are going to stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of the problems Microsoft has were the result of bad product choices. Unfortunately, the result is a lot of changes impacting individual contributors. My advice would be to determine what markets they are going to compete in and make appropriate investments in those markets.
