    Smart people. High quality co-workers. Very visible project that can influence lives of millions of people.

    Review system. They are finding ways to change it but due to the size of the company, it is a very hard task. Pay is low for long-timers compared to new-comers.

    reward people, with higher salary!

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

    Pros

    Great place to get a breath of experiences.

    Cons

    The company is having an identity crisis now. I know they want to change, but there are so many people in current management levels who are not willing to change

    Advice to Management

    I started there 14 years ago and it was great because you could make a difference and people listened to you. Now people at Director and GM levels ego's are so big that they think they know if all and will NOT listen to people below them
