I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

There are a lot of great people to work with at Microsoft.

Cons

Executive leadership often makes decisions without understanding the full impact on all levels of the business.

Advice to Management

Value your long time high performing employees, no matter what their level or title. They all have contributed to making Microsoft successful in some way. Microsoft should view these dedicated employees as an investment. When you replace them with cheaper inexperienced people you are wasting those years that the company has invested, all to save a few bucks. What a shame.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexibility, challenges, people are generally good

    Cons

    Too many non-technical leaders or technical leaders without empathy. Tons of politics in the major divisions and orgs...not worth your time. HR changes are not a reality, the ratings will persist. Don't be fooled.

    Advice to Management

    Stop operating out of a place of fear. It is non-productive and destroys teams and orgs.


  2. "Worst company in universe ever"

    If you like to experience slavery this would be the ideal place.

    Cons

    Everything bad you can conceive of is present in here.

    Advice to Management

    No advice, since it is hopeless.
