I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Amazing work - life balance
Fantastic facilities
Supportive work culture
Very skilled co-workers

Cons

Too much focus on numbers

Advice to Management

The number based rating shouldn't be too much emphasized and pushed through, so that talented and skilled people will continue focus on quality and other non-quantifiable values like enthusiasm and calmness

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

    Pros

    Microsoft has a long history of trying to do the right things for it's customers and employees. There are alot of great people at Microsoft and when they are given the freedom to deliver they usually do a great job.

    Cons

    Out of 15 years working at Microsoft the last few years were bad. My last manager was unable to communicate a consistent goal, and was surprised when 'the thing' she wanted done wasn't what she expected. Focus was on managing up rather than what the company needed to produce for happy customers.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to knowing the individuals who are doing the actual work for key projects, don't filter through several layers of management.

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for Bing and the work is pretty challenging.

    Cons

    As it is a very big company the role of a single employee is minimal. Also if the work location is not Redmond your work might be scrapped off and de-prioritized.
    Pay in India is less compared to many other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say
