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

Pros

There is a lot of roles - but it also means to get a very rounded experience you would have to do different roles - but you can do them across different teams - so life stays interesting

Cons

if Promos and pay are you thing - this is not a fast paced young company - so temper expectations

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work life balance (depending on the group), a good compensation deal. A renewed focus on building the product stack.

    Cons

    Stack ranking means that you're competing with your team members, which strongly inhibits teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    If you're serious about rewarding working with each other, you need to change the stack rank system.
