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

    Pros

    Benefits and work-life balance are great. The company has a great culture, and activities and sports are very much encouraged.

    Cons

    The rate of promotion could at times be slow, though you will get compensated for your efforts. Depending on your group culture and product you could be very satisfied or totally unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees run a little loose and really get wild and innovative with their technical skills. That's what brings about creativity and satisfies them and builds their confidence in the company. What's the point of hiring brilliant engineers if you want to force them to do the same redundant tasks over and over again?!

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very bright and competitive people
    Good products
    Excellent benefits

    Cons

    Performance rating system is outdated
    Check egos at the door
    Remember that while competition is good, not good within teams (we're all in the same game)
    Cliques are so highschool - grow up.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more of fewer things - the PC era is gone - better turn the ship around now
