Pros

Diverse workforce and product portfolio. Movement within the company means you can always find something "new" to do. Excellent benefits even as they've been curtailed over the years.

Cons

In the dwindling minority of Fortune 500 companies that still subscribe to Jack Welch's "Rank and Yank" review system.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft has some great technologies, great people, and great passion internally. The benefits are outstanding and overall compensation is very good. You have the opportunity to work on projects that will impact millions or potentially hundreds of millions of people.

    Cons

    Microsoft can't change it's corporate culture to deal with the 21st century. It moves too slow and is too insular from customers and what else is going on. There is quite a sense of entitlement among employees, especially those that have been there a long time. Both in terms of how they expect to work, but also very much a "if we build it, they will come" mentality.


  2. "Senior consultant"
