Pros

Good if your next career is of Ploitician; shot term 1-2 years and also if you are very early in your career.

layoffs every year ; Cut throat policy ; company of Politicians; Standard of people are also coming down. There are three division and they sell as unique brand but it is not all same. Very scary environment as layoffs are more frequent.

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

    Pros

    - you get a chance to work on latest MS technologies
    - Strong Internal Community, Distibution Lists
    - You can directly interact with product guys, researchers. basically networking
    - Great focus in Learning n Development

    Cons

    - Favouritism (Getting a promotion can be as difficult as reaching a star, seriously)
    - Lack in openess
    - Work Life Balance can be hit anytime
    - You'll work only in MS technologies
    - Low salary as compared to those who are in product (even freshers earn more)
    - Too much level mismatch and thus disparity across MS divisions (in some department freshers are at much higher level than here (Level starts with 55 (usually 2+ years of experience)))

    Advice to Management

    - Remove the level difference across divisions
    - Bring openess and encourage employees and mgmt to say and listen NO as per situations
