    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.
