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

    Pros

    When it comes to employee care, not many companies come close to Microsoft. Besides good employee package, it has great work environment and ethics. Alos has plethora of technical fields that one can choose to work in. I have 11+ yrs of work experience and Microsoft is my fourth employer. And this is the best of all !

    Cons

    Some senior leaders don't like to change their way of thinking, style of work etc and this hurts. Esp in today's agile and ever-changing environment, you cease to learn new if you are unwilling to change the way you think and work.

    Advice to Management

    Always be receptive of change and innovation.

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

    Pros

    Progressive company, leading technology, passionate employees, a lot of room for career growth and expansion.

    Cons

    Hyper competitive company culture that is not conducive to collaboration and team work. Annual stack ranking philosophy can result in moving good people out of teams/departments, thus shifting team momentum.

    Advice to Management

    Employee retention is key. Focus programs on employee longevity, collaboration and cross functional cooperation. Microsoft has amazing talent that is often under utilized.
