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

    Pros

    Salary, bonuses, growth opportunities in your area

    Cons

    If you end up in the wrong team its possible you won't like others around you or be drowned in work. It is a highly competitive environment and to succeed in it you must love the game. Ask yourself, if there is a choice to go to war or not is your answer yess!! and are you willing to lead it without backing down even if you are bleeding? if the answer is yes, you will succeed, otherwise you might do better somewhere else. MS is a battlefield.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on morale and team dynamics, that is your job after all. If you have that down, success of projects is almost guaranteed.


  2. "Amazing experience with wonderful coworkers."

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The FTEs are great people. The other contractors aren't all as good, but in my dept the people are amazing. Kind, helpful, cool.
    The job isn't hard if you are good at problem solving. If you hated word problems in math class, perhaps this isn't the best position for you.
    Great experience, wonderful culture, casual dress, good pay, flexible hours, etc etc etc - if the work gets done, they're happy.

    Cons

    Lots of contractors, fewer FTE positions. Rarely, but occasionally feel like a second class citizen. I assume it's this way contracting anywhere, though - and I know that the only things I'm excluded from are the ones they can't invite me to by policy (FTE)

    Advice to Management

    SC&WS.
