    "Mixed. Met some great people, and learned a few things, but the organization doesn't make you better."

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

    Pros

    Some very intelligent people in the product groups, get to work with some innovative products, and the library is wonderful.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape, and silence on important issues. The training you get is the wrong training, unless you're getting technical training. Redmond is the center of the company, and if you want to do something important, you need to be in Redmond.

    Pros

    If you're determined you can have a very nice career growth and many options available to you.
    Depending on the position, you can access a wealth of trainings and travel can also be an option.

    Cons

    As in any large company, you cannot change everything you want.
    Also, politics may come into play from time to time

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees.
