I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits are amazing, flexible work (telework), capable to have work life balance and still be successful, your manager can make or break your experience, ability to change roles and completely start from scratch if you want every 2 - 3 years.

Cons

Your manager can make or break your job, annual calibration relative to your peers creates unnecessary competition between coworkers...

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft has great benefits, average pay scales and good campus amenities. There are good people that work there as individual contributors. There are a number of good telecommuting options.

    Cons

    Microsoft is no longer focused on innovation. They are focused on Microsoft. The company does not care about the employee. They do not care about the work performed, they care about the perception of the work the employee performs. Microsoft does not work to improve the employee, they work to shield Managers from negative polls and release any employee who they 'can' meaning with a low likelihood of being sued. The company has fostered a destructive and hampering stack ranking review system that does not acknowledge the contributions of a resource, but rather causes conflict and competitive actions amongst team members that should be working together instead of against each other...

    Advice to Management

    Stop placating to self absorbed ladder climbers who do so at the expense of others. Promote by value of the person, not value of the temporal circumstance. LEAD more, manage less.
