    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New and competitive opportunities, high industry impact, high customer impact, good cross team support, demanding work schedules, work life balance, work when you want but deliver on time system

    Cons

    Lot of politics, performance review is based on number of years at career level than contributions made, reaching saturation, no team morale
    Sometimes you not only have to deliver the project but have to evangelize it within the team to get recognition. You are your own company and you got to live it.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in fresh ideas, learn to appreciate employee's contribution than pin pointing at a minor issue

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the company moves at a very fast pace, lots of smart people to work with

    Cons

    The demands are high and everyone is out to protect/secure their own turf, so you can't really trust anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Make it more like a start-up, work more in teams with similar goals.
