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

    Pros

    Work and culture is awesome. If you are someone who values quality work and enjoys responsibility, no better place to be.
    Employee benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Low and mid-level management are seriously useless. You can cut at least 2 managers out of 5 in a group.
    HR is totally invisible and of no use at all. They are in tie-ups with Management for performance reviews. Instead of empowering and helping employees, they side with the management and are of little use to an average employee.

    Advice to Management

    Company wide vision and direction is good. The road ahead is tough but MS should stick to the tough choices they've made and success will come in the near future.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Teamwork, flexibility, working environment, benefits, corporate culture, renewed innovation and focus; some great and iconic brands; well-respected; starting to engage in consumer-centric development and marketing; structured and well thought-out professional development and career planning.

    Cons

    Can be strangely competitive due to opaque performance ranking process that pits staff against one another; consistent unrealistic forecasting leads to wasted time and efforts as teams throw everything at trying to hit impossible targets; long-term strategy is sometimes forsaken for immediate results; attached to the product at the expense of the consumer.
