I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Smartest people I've worked with anywhere
Great benefits
Interesting work

Cons

Poor management not managed out
Competing with peers doesn't lead to collaboration (this is changing)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take employees' manager feedback to heart -- promoting great individual contributors to management is not always the best option.

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

    Pros

    Microsoft remains to be one of the best technology companies on the planet focusing on producing software. Company culture is revolving around people, customer, business, and technology. Priorities may be unbalanced in some teams, but in general they are right.

    Cons

    Some platform technologies produced by the company are loosing the world dominance, while still remain very capable. But this reflects on what transferable skills one can gain in the company.
