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

    Pros

    high pay, employees are empowered to make decisions, excellent benefits and working conditions

    Cons

    stack ranking system is a nightmare. employees who excel at what they do and wish to stay with their current job are not appreciated. you must keep moving or drown at Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    let employees who excel at their jobs stick with it. otherwise they move until the peter principle takes effect and they are let go for meeting their commitments. stop using the stack ranking system. it will never be fair as long as managers have quotas to fill for each ranking.


  2. "Takes good care of employees; can be stogy and bureaucratic"
