I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Overall it is good to be part of Microsoft. They pay well, benefits are good. Bonus and stock options are also good.

Cons

Responsibility expectation is huge. Recently, they removed the no-cast medical benefits which make all of employees likely take a big cut in their take home salary. 401K match is only 50% where most of the big companies match 100%. Work-balance is always hard to maintain.

Advice to Management

Increase the 401K match to 100 %.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work with smart people on interesting technical work. Ability to move to new groups within the company relatively easily, so can keep learning new and interesting things.

    Cons

    Review process has to fit a particular number of people in individual buckets. When everyone is competent, this exercise sometimes becomes more political than reflective of true merit.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the review process.
