    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Renumeration is good for a large corporate. Shares given regularly though upside on shares is low.
    Access to great technology, and good staff software perks including employee purchase and free MSDN Ultimate.

    Cons

    Quite political and sometimes doesn't feel like everyone is pulling in the same direction. Review system isn't great, can sometimes act unfairly to both high and low achievers which can impact bonuses and often success is very dependent on the product rather than the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Microsoft has excellent integration between its software products - try and sell solutions that add client value rather than just trying to bundle products up in an EA or driving hard to get an unneeded product in the EA.

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

    Pros

    Good salary, working with MS is matter of great pride

    Cons

    Not much career growth after SCON,
    lot of politics and show off required to survive
    if you want to survive be prepared to pull somebody down.
    your annual appraisal depends on stupid EM feedback (who knows nothing about delivery)
