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

    Pros

    Decent cash rewards, name brand that opens doors. Good but not great benefits. Relatively stable. Get to work with lots of bright people.

    Cons

    Politics, limited financial upside, gender/racial quotas make promotions and performance reviews frustrating from a white male perspective. Disliked by a good portion of the tech community.

    Advice to Management

    Hoping "one Microsoft" works.


  2. "Great company, great benefits, opportunity to work on a variety of products and technologies."

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The people are some of the best in the industry. Diverse products and lines of businesses provide various career opportunities. The recent move towards the "One Microsoft" strategy has certainly energized employees across the organization. There are very well defined career paths for different roles. For engineers or Program managers this is a company to build a long term career.

    Cons

    Gigantic company, occasionally can be difficult to see one's impact on the company in a meaningful way.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize people for collaborating, the new review system is a great first step.
