Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Looks good in your CV

Cons

- If you are in 'that' circle - then it is good, else u r just working as a slave!
- a follower - wanted to launch Surface, created new team, once done, most are fired!
- HR is not doing the right job
- Total waste of time as no matter how hard you work, the company only recognizes those who can TALK BEAUTIFULLY but WORK TERRIBLY. Style with no substance! IF you are that type, pls join Microsoft
- You never feel secure working in Microsoft.

Advice to Management

- Cultivate teamwork and listen.

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

    Pros

    It's a great place for techies. The kind of technical stuff you can learn here is simply amazing. You will also grow as a person, learning how to face challenges, drive initiatives, etc.

    Cons

    Manager favouritism is rampant in the org. Trying to be a star performer, you might get to a situation where your personal/family life is nil.
