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

    Pros

    Very smart guys
    Great benefits and PTO
    Stable job

    Cons

    Stack ranking makes for a toxic infighting work environment. Nobody trusts anybody. This stifles innovations. Destroys nimbleness.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of stack ranking, make teamwork and innovation the priority.
