I have been working at Microsoft full-time

Pros

Competitive salary, good community involvement, strong global presence, great products, cares about employees

Cons

Very large and political company, hierarchical, review process is inefficient and difficult to assess where you are relative to peers, too focused on short term compensation at lower levels of company

Advice to Management

Shift focus back to long-term compensation to keep top talent vs. just paying for today; revert back to old review process
