    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Highly technical and excellent people to work with. There's always something to learn. Excellent benefits and decent compensation (would be great if you only had 40 hr work weeks). Increasingly more non-support opportunities outside of Redmond.

    Cons

    Long hours. High stress. The malignancy of the stack rank. You're graded on the curve, so self-promotion is nearly as important as doing your job. If you don't know how the review process works behind the scenese you're often screwed over and don't even know it. Pathetic executives - Ballmer, Turner, Brummell.

    Advice to Management

    Fire Ballmer before it becomes "the lost decadeS."
