    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Regardless of the area/business group you work in, the impact you can have can be tremendous if you have a solid management team - especially you immediate manager. Terrific benefits and potential for long term job satisfaction.

    Cons

    Better bring your type A/red personality otherwise you might get run over. In some groups it is a feeding frenzy which was not helped by the performance review structure (now gone).

    Advice to Management

    The company has been moving in the right direction at the macro level - devices, services, branding, etc. - but there is so much frenetic activity within the product groups that not very much lands with impacts. Good start, lots more to do.


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Not my favorite culture, but it could be worse. FTE's live the good life, contracts are second class citizens."

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of free drinks, and lots of resources as far as learning about the company and possibly your role.

    Cons

    Very few things are officially documented. Most of the manuals are out of date so you have to read multiple manuals to get the whole idea, or task. Not one of the greatest cultures surrounding contract work, but one of the better places to get experience.
