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

    Pros

    If software development is your game, there isn't another place that offers the diversity of work that Microsoft does. Excellent mobility.
    Great salary and benefits
    Smart people all around

    Cons

    Not incentivized to collaborate. The review system makes people focused on delivering their own "features" are.
    Execution lacking
    Managers lack leadership.
    Loosing brand.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize collaboration through 360 reviews focusing on peers more than manager input. Cut the layers of middle management and PMs that don't add any value and suck the life out of the place.

    It's interesting how non-technical people are loud and can influence engineering
