I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Driven company with very few wage slaves. Most people want to work there

stack ranking process is awful. The people who spend the most time fighting for visibility do the best, not the people who are best at their jobs

Advice to Management

Tweak review process

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work/life balance
    Access to the latest technology
    Alright benefits

    Cons

    Review process is shocking, you are literally competing with your peers so you just don't want others to do well
    It's all about self promotion, you need to make sure you send out updates to the whole company to increase your visibility
    Spend way too much time in front of spreadsheets reporting on the business and not enough time with customers and partners
    Too focused on beating the competition rather than looking at what is best for the customer
    Field marketing teams focusing more and more on localisation of US creative
    Loss of autonomy for creative and innovative thinkers
    Low morale with staff

    Advice to Management

    Bring in leaders who are want to innovate and provide creative thinkers autonomy
    Rehaul the review process
    Too many business ops individuals running the place - great for the short term but will terrible for the short term
