    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to aquire deep technical expertise and meet interestring people.
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Consultants are treated as disposable garbage in most cases. Unclear and vague commitments which need to be signed every year. Distribution of available assignments is extreemly convoluted and based on politics in most cases. Consultanst are required to search for assignments and in case of slow market are blamed for utilisation gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Change utilisation formulas and stop treating consultants as second clas citizens.
