    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Microsoft is a large organization with significant resources. This affords opportunities to try new things although at times wasteful or to excess.

    Cons

    There are a lot of smart people with good ideas, however those ideas die due to internal politics. As executives work to build kingdoms and amass influence and power, you find that teams work against one another. This internal competition does not benefit the greater good and rather ends with mediocres results.

    Advice to Management

    Rather than building personal kingdoms, focus on building great products..


  2. "Great Company"
