I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Fun activities and we got an amazing intern gift. I learned a lot from fellow interns and especially from other full time employees. The work environment was very friendly

Cons

There weren't many cons that I could think of except that the work was a bit tedious and I wish the project I worked on made more of an impact.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, smart people, flexible work option. It has a wide range of products. So you can switch within Microsoft to work on lots of cool stuff

    Cons

    Sometimes, it's too big of a company. Cutting through red tape can be frustrating. Lots of processes in place (which can sometimes be good, but sometimes bad)


  2. "My time there started fine, however the organization I was in evolved into a huge clique similar to the rest of the co."

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

    Pros

    Exciting and challenging work. My compensation was good as I was hired when stock options were still available. Smart people.

    Cons

    If you didn't spend half your time trying to be "in the clique" instead of doing your job, you were on the outs. What I mean is, you got table scraps when it came to raises, bonuses, stock, promotions, etc. Many times I witnessed incompetent people get promoted up the chain only to watch them fail.

    Advice to Management

    Truly gauge employee value based on performance.
