    Pros

    Benefits are phenomenal. Fun work environment. Understands that life happens.

    Cons

    Pay inequality. Upper management's words do not have the actions and support behind them

    Advice to Management

    Truly support your teams with actions and not just words

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Growth Mindset
    - Great Executive team with many diverse and inspiring people who clearly want to make Microsoft a great place to work and are moving in the right direction.
    - Many great teams to work on and for, but also not so great ones and the difference across the company can be striking, but I have noticed in recent years that the "bad" teams (usually because of their management) are starting to disappear.

    Cons

    - Slow to change (as expected with any corporation this size)
    - Still occasionally operates like multiple businesses instead of providing a unified view
    - lack of transparency around promotion and pay policies and plans

    Advice to Management

    - increase transparency
    - provide better training/resources to middle management and weed out the bad apples from the lot.
