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

    Pros

    Huge ambition
    Driven people
    Big enough to chase the dreams

    Cons

    Getting big, impersonal, and unwieldy
    Inefficient - empowerment leads to uncoordinated and wasteful action

    Advice to Management

    Realize that people do business with people they like; sellers sell what they know; employees recommend what they feel great about. EVERY individual employee is valuable in this equation, not just the top 1%.
