    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, benefits and ability to work cross collaboratively with lots of teams.

    Cons

    Territorial in some teams which makes transparency and collaboration more difficult than necessary. Lots of management changes and internal structure changes which led to low morale and unsettling behaviour.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency and communication required.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Better compensation, lucrative joining bonus
    - Cafeteria, well stocked pantry
    - Good giving campaigns, yearly round of charitable giving
    - Open to lateral movements across teams, locations
    - Supports distance learning and even funds some of the well recognized courses!

    Cons

    - Bad culture. I have no idea how the bangalore office has turned out to have a culture so distant from what Microsoft elsewhere is known for. Diversity, inclusion and friendly people - all are lacking here. You get hired now.. you are more certain to feel lonely, marginalized and left to fend for yourselves.
    - Middle of a massive realignment. MS is undergoing a top to bottom shakeup and reorg which can leave you uncertain of coming times. But if you are old timer at Microsoft, perhaps it is a cause for much joy. Certain teams in Bing and BingAds is undergoing a swift move to agility and with no clear focus on what to aim for, teams are trying what feels best for them and most are re-engineering what other tech giants like Goog, Amzn have solved well for years. Things like Disaster management, CI all are getting solved for now. Seems like a decade old problem.

    Advice to Management

    - Train junior employees on Diversity and Inclusion .
    - Define Bangalore centers charter. Hold regular all hands to list accomplishments of teams.
    - Be responsible for bangalore centers place in the organization.
