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

    Pros

    Microsoft has very high customer base of more than 1 billion customers. So working at Microsoft provides ability to impact and help billion customers around the world. There are many very popular products at Microsoft, so it's also convenient to just move across the company if you want to work on different types of products.

    Cons

    Since Microsoft is a large company with large user base, there are very few product teams in the company that would provide start up experience (if that's what someone is looking for). Having said that, there are always few teams at Microsoft that are working on new projects, so there is opportunity to find start up experience type projects.

    Advice to Management

    I believe that upper management is doing pretty well. I like the overall direction of the company and big bets that are being placed by the company. It's a very interesting time for technology industry and Microsoft is very well positioned to deliver superior end user experience. Management has been aligning various parts of company to help company deliver on next big bets of Microsoft.
