    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great technology, good pay, among the best health benefits, and very smart co-workers. I worked for Microsoft in its heyday and it will be the greatest company I've ever worked for.

    Cons

    In the past 5 years or so Microsoft has become a revenue focused company with licensing being the primary objective of customer interactions & employee measurement.

    Advice to Management

    In the EPG space your people and their relationships with Enterprise customers are your most valuable asset.

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

    Pros

    Able to work on well established software used worldwide or on small startup projects yet to be used by anyone. Opportunity to shift career across technologies and functional disciplines and limited only by your own imagination and drive. Each day you learn something new about and from one of your amazing coworkers from all over the world.

    Cons

    Outside perception within the industry about what Microsoft is all about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to enable the fantastic folks that work with and around you and continue to celebrate innovation and delivery of high value customer scenarios. Demand the type of continuous improvement from each of the divisions that we all expect and let our customers know the range of scenarios that we can light up for them and that we care about their business.
