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

Pros

Good benefits, smart and professional coworkers, flexible daily schedule, beautiful offices, good work equipment provided

Cons

Too much "Process" can result in less than excellent product quality, also many of the products are not bringing value to the industry/society.

Advice to Management

Try to offer a great, innovative service to the customer, focus later on revenue generation.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Flexible hours
    Smart people
    When it works, it works very well.

    Cons

    Internal politics - likely true of any large corporation. Review system needs overhauling. Currently emphasis is on collaboration, but review system undermines that by pitting folks against one another and then only rewarding those who are most visible on a project. It's become demoralizing to many.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the ridiculous review system.
