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

Pros

The company is filled with brilliant and intelligent people. Microsoft has all type of teams and plenty of opportunities for all kinds of work.

Cons

Growth is slow and the review process is not that good. Also the culture in some teams is very rigid. Not easy to influence and bring on change.

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

    Pros

    Super inspiring being among smart and driven employees. Lot's of great resources. Able to work on something way bigger than anyone could do alone. Possibility to transfer within the company.

    Cons

    Performance evaluation system makes it difficult to collaborate at times, because at the and of the day, employees are competing for good reviews and somebody has to be at the bottom.

    Advice to Management

    Make the priorities of your organization super clear to help your people make the right decision and focus on what's most important.
