    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great technologies, very smart people, great benefits, employees seem to have a sense of pride, beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Extremely political, Very internally focused, too much red tape and unnecessary processes/reporting. Lower level management staff is very ineffective. The compensation plan is not very good. You are judged on your ability to position yourself politically and not by your ability.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the unnecessary reporting and red tape. Judge your team on results and not politics.
