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

    Pros

    Good tools that help with the day-to-day, sometimes they break and it's painful, but still a lot better than not having them.
    Private offices, which are nice if you just want to be heads-down and get work done.
    Lots of really smart people, from which you can always learn something new.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Very political environment, a lot of middle management.
    Most times "How it looks" or the "Team Stats" are more important than doing the right thing for users or the company.

    Advice to Management

    Promote better managers
