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

Pros

Smart, passionate people who love what they do. Great HR support and compensation packages. Innovative and vibrant work environment. Opportunities to learn and grow, and great engagement with the community and with philanthropic organizations. Microsoft employees are generous and hardworking, as exemplified by their annual Giving campaign.

Cons

It's hard to change direction for such a large corporation, whether it's the business as a whole, or the process for an organization. Teams are often hemmed in by internal tools, processes.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good salary. Lots of perks.

    Cons

    I've worked here 8 months and been part of 2 reorganizations. Bosses change, roles change, reporting changes.

    Advice to Management

    People need a sense that the thing they are building and put in charge of will actually mean something. If the company re-orgs every 6 months nobody will really invest in anything they do.
