    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to work at a global scale, with the potential to get required resources

    Cons

    The reputation of having worked at MS is diminishing as they aren't viewed as an innovator. The stock isn't risking, so people work to advance themselves over others as a way to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of big bets going on simultaneously. Either organize and resource to take them on, or try for fewer big bets

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Good salary, sign-on stock bonus
    * Good health benefits, not so good anymore
    * Brilliant co-workers

    Cons

    * Extremely aggressive culture
    * Groupism, tendency to not let new people in

    Advice to Management

    Change the performance review system to encourage co-operation and knowledge sharing among employees. Manager needs to ensure that the team attitude towards new employees should be one of inclusion, make it easy for them to adapt to the new product, teammates, processes at Microsoft.
