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

    Pros

    Working on Microsoft products (still) means having an impact on many people world-wide. People are using Windows, Office, the Xbox, Skype, etc.

    Cons

    Increasingly bureaucratic and also because of the review system (but also because of sheer size) quite political. Because of politics too many turf wars and restructurings.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get rid of the review system
    2. Stop reorging all the time
