    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice benefits
    Plenty of opportunities to switch to different teams/technical interests as there're always multiple teams hiring. Internal candidates definitely get an easier pass compared to external candidates
    Smart people to work with and network with

    Cons

    Political driven
    Great place for managers to develop their careers but not necessary individual contributors
    Experiences vary greatly with the departments. Some departments like OSD (online service division) is notorious for re-orgs and non-productivity.

    Advice to Management

    The review model of forcing employees to a curve only brings competition instead of collaboration.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great technologies, great projects, interesting engagements.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be a challenge, but this is cyclical in nature and didn't bother me much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
