    Pros

    Collaborative and flexible schedules. Microsoft has good benefits and wealth of learning opportunity because it has huge selections of articles, books, and media in the library.

    Cons

    Depending on the group(s) you're in but some groups practice discrimination and only hired their own kind of people (ie..East Indian People).

    Advice to Management

    Please be more involved in employee selection and careful on who you put in charge of hiring. Group diversity is most important and harnessing the most talents.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Technology is top notch, smart people, the people you work with in general, compensation

    Cons

    Senior executive leadership, performance system, stack ranking, mandatory 5% attrition and an additional 10% of ruined careers, breeding a culture of mediocrity

    Advice to Management

    Consider a change to the COO/CEO and remove the performance system that is leading to the complete fall of your culture. People are leaving and looking to leave and it is happening now.
