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

    Pros

    The quality of many of the people
    Opportunities for travel
    Brand on your CV
    Exposure to broad ecosystem of partners

    Cons

    Appalling corporate HQ politics and culture.
    Some appallingly hostile managers
    Obsession with numbers
    Lots of HQ people doing little except to tell all who will listen how much they are doing to drive great business, initiatives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New CEO Satya Nadella has stated he wants to drive a new culture - I hope this comes to fruition.
    Laying off 18 000 people isn't a good start.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company and culture, ability to work cross group and get close to product groups . I was able to create the job I would like !

    Cons

    Working for Microsoft Corporation but with the status "Regional Guest Employee" in another subsidiary, my compensation and advancement stalled during my international assignment !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going on innovation. Increase mobility across subsidiaries and divisions. Ensure Corporate Employee experience is recognised at the subsidiary level. You have a lot of innovations you should take to market faster !
