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

Pros

You meet brilliant and experienced people.

Cons

I don't like the culture in Seattle/Redmond area; I'm European.

Advice to Management

Spend less on social events or add diversity in the events. I'm not really into the American culture when going out. I don't like playing video games.

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

    Pros

    Wide range of interesting products to work on, lots of opportunity for real impact, plenty of smart people who fuel innovation.

    Cons

    Too big for its own good, opportunity for impact stifled by bureaucracy and politics, for every smart person... there are plenty of bullheaded, egotistical managers who think they've got it all figured out.

    Advice to Management

    Get focused on what Microsoft really is about and align your teams so they're not all undermining each other.
