I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you nail your job, you'll have your pick of tough problems to solve. Microsoft is a great company if you can align market realities with your skill set & where you want to grow. Tons of career growth.

Cons

If you're not actively investing in your skills you can become stagnant in your skill set & less competitive in the market.

Advice to Management

Solve more problems with tools, not people.

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have the resources to get things done - should they decide to do something

    Cons

    Too many meetings - hard to make any decisions

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the amount of meetings; hire the contractors to be full-time employees. Yes, that means you will have to pay benefits. But projects are hard to complete if people keep changing.


  2. "good company lack of growth"
