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

Pros

Microsoft is a fabulous place to work. Management is very empowering. Work life balance is terrific and the compensation is very competitive in the industry.

Cons

The overall size of the company is the only downside of working for Microsoft. Sometimes feel like the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing

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

    Pros

    Great, smart people to work with. Challenging work and projects.

    Cons

    Politics and "checking the box" on unimportant things and processes overshadowed the actual work to be done. Review process focused too much on politics rather than actual accomplishments

    Advice to Management

    The "new" review model still incorporates stack ranking even though it is hidden from employees. Focus on accomplishments of the people as opposed to those that play the political game.
