    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well paid, lots of very smart people.

    Cons

    Too many smart people, too much PM dominance of every division. Just way too many people working on every problem instead of a few core people and a solid division of smart devs.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce this company by 1/2 of the current staff. Hold people accountable and give them power and authority around areas they are passionate about. Stop trying to make everything fit into everything else, let what customers need, want and love inform your strategy.
