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

Pros

Fun work environment with smart, motivated and friendly coworkers and a focus on work-life balance. Great benefits including coverage for external training. The work is interesting and there is a lot of flexibility to expand an existing role into new areas in order to continue personal development.

Cons

The company is well staffed with great employees in upper management, which can make it more challenging for those looking for upper level promotion opportunities.

    Pros

    Trusted to do work on your own time with flexibility for good work life balance. Wealth of internal tools and education to help further your career opportunities in or out of the company.

    Cons

    Politics. Sometimes people seem out for themselves in the battle between disciplines. Waffling review system. Health benefits have degraded with conversion to HSA. Right hand never seems to know what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of middle performers work and acknowledge it. Pay attention to those who are experiencing burnout. Don't make changes just because someone told you to. Be a leader not a follower.
