    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy, you are given expectations and provided you are a self starter, are innovative and driven, you should be able to succeed.

    Cons

    Individual contributors need to be aware that the perception of success often falls to you becoming management.
    If you are in the wrong team, you can be disparaged very easily - rumors do fly.

    Advice to Management

    Skip levels. Do them, in prior teams they maintained the balance. My last team failed and contributed to my leaving the company after nearly a decade.
