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

Pros

Great people. Great projects. Amazing benefits. $0.00 copay on doctor visits or any kind of medical procedures. Women get 6 weeks of maternity leave. Plus 3 weeks vacation. Digital advertising sales was awesome. MS had great sales support, excellent resources, and always had enough of a budget to do the things we needed to do, e.g., travel, entertain, business needs, etc. Every other company I worked for has had such tight budgets; it seems like I'm always struggling to get the help I need.

Cons

In the Dallas office, career advancement is limited because the majority of our operations were either out of New York or Redmond. If you're willing to move though, career advancement is nearly unlimited. MS is really good about not limiting you to functional silos. In their view, good talent is good talent and can be used in many different departments.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Surrounded with brilliant people
    Great overall benefits and coverage (medical, dental, 401k matching, ESPP, charitable matching - money and time)

    Cons

    Broken review model rewards employees that are best at "playing the game" and not the best and brightest employees
    Management has suffered the most from the review model resulting in mediocre at best managers

    Advice to Management

    Focus on solving the employee morale problem which seems to be largely stemming from the review model.
