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

    Pros

    Latest technology and processes. Easy to transfer between a huge variety of product groups. Great pay and benefits. Work life balance for most groups.

    Cons

    Often focus is on a director's pet projects instead of what's best for the product. If you are in a group of rocket scientists, then your review rating / bonuses will suffer, and you might be forced to leave the group.

    Advice to Management

    More focus for the company. Given the huge number of products, there is little polish that gives the company a premium in the marketplace. The company has been spoiled by monopolies, in which polish is not necessary.
