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

    Pros

    You get to work with clever people on big problems and for a company that is well resourced.
    Great benefits and reasonable compensation.

    Cons

    Middle-execs seemed to focus more on increasing the size of their empire (at the expense of other divisions), and less on innovation, customers and growing businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Demand a more entrepreneurial environment for these execs.

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

    Pros

    The salary is good and you get a lot of discounts/perks. Flexible schedules so you can go to appointments during the day.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is VERY hard to come by and some groups are in constant fire drill mode. The review "curve" means someone on a team of rock stars is going to get a crappy review.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the review "curve". If someone has a team of rock stars, they should all be rewarded for that.
