    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%.


  2. "Great company with amazing benefits."

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

    Pros

    Great culture. Great coworkers. Its a job where I look forward to work. Can't say that about most jobs. My coworkers make it fun.

    Cons

    Stressful at times. But this is true of most jobs. Sometimes you just need to take a nice break and give yourself some time to relax.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page. Sometimes management is on different pages its sometimes hard to know what's going on.
