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

Pros

If you want to solve tough problems and work with an amazing set of people, this is the place to be.

Cons

MS is more like a bunch of companies under a single brand rather than a single company, so opinions vary with whom you ask. Your group and manager will ultimately determine how happy/successful you are.

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

    Pros

    Pay is decent and you have an "in" with every company...for good or bad.

    Cons

    Stack ranking has killed morale and teamwork. This has also hurt the focus on the customer and turned everyone internally to focus on office politics and your internal review. Medical benefits have been cut and that used to be a great draw. Always in the 'walled garden' or defend mode against the rest of the tech world.

    Advice to Management

    Change the review process so people focus on workign together instead of seeing everyone as a threat. Innovate faster and get out of chase mode. Definitly need changes at the top.


  2. "A lifetime of experience"

    Pros

    Fairly easy to move to between divisions and gain amazing experience, good pay

    More focus on continued revenue streams, and less on innovative products

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees based on true individual performance and not on a "curve".
