    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    if you just want to stretch yourself technically, this is a great place to work.

    Cons

    The rating system is very badly designed. Managers and senior+ ICs are rated together, in the same bucket! causing a very apparent conflict of interest which the management doesn't seem to see. Leads/Managers get better ratings than their IC counterparts

    The middle management, composed of the the desi brigade, is not at all bothered about MS; they just have some skewed agenda of promoting/highlighting the select few and keep the remaining ratings in 1 and 2 for themselves. They don't deserve anything better than 3, most of the times.

    Balmer is leaving, that is good for the company; though i strongly feel that this middle management needs a rejig.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up
