    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is comparable within industry, perks are good.

    Cons

    Unless you are coming in externally advancement is difficult to come by. You are better off leaving for a year and coming back.

    Advice to Management

    The cost discipline provided by our HR and financial policies have been a great asset over the years. That said, we aren't going to continue to grow without making some gambles, and betting on your people would be the best investment possible.
