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

    Pros

    As long as you are have a good manager, you can do wonders in MS. There are opportunities to grow inany discipline.

    Cons

    Lot of bureaucracy/politics, lack of good managers who can direct, guide and bring up their people.

    Advice to Management

    They should seriously look into the feedback that the employees give about their mangaers and take some serious actions so that the bad managers don't get away with anything they feel like doing.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Continues to be a place where smart people work, innovative product ideas are encouraged and the company (some parts of it at least) continues to operate like a scrappy startup.

    Cons

    The big company politics is suffocating. Too many useless senior folks who do less product work and more politics. Brown nosing has taken an art form!!

    Advice to Management

    Demonstrate leadership and vision. Choose who you make a lead or manager carefully. Scrap the review system and truly innovate in this space.
