    Pros

    There are still some truly great folks who work at MIcrosoft. You can learn a lot from them. The sheer diversity of products within the same company is hard to match: you can find exactly the right product on which you'd like to work. Many teams have really good work/life balance. You'll have the opportunity on many teams to see world-scale software being developed and maintained.

    Cons

    The review system is very discouraging: a large chunk of the employee base will get a dispiriting message every year and there's no real (economic) benefit to being on a high-performing team.

    Though large, Microsoft is insular when it comes to its own technologies and products. It's hard to maintain or grow your skills outside of the MS ecosystem without a lot of isolated effort.

    Huge legacy and installed user base size creates a lot of inertial that makes innovation harder. This applies to both the products themselves and the processes/tools used to create them.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp, replace or remove the rating system. Add some notion of team rewards for success.
