    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are delivering on a project that has a measurable impact on the bottom line you will typically be recognized and rewarded for your contribution. Many opportunities for success.

    Cons

    Lately politics have become a hindrance, teams often have drastically different resouce allocation. Stack ranking was often inequitable for evaluating eployee performance but I understand that stack ranking to evaluate performance has been replaced.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you are good at and stop trying to be great at everything. Microsoft is great at software, not so good in other areas that really eat into bottom line.
