I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Overall good benefits, good compensation. A wide variety of projects to work on makes it easier to learn and grow along the career path.

Cons

Weak leaderships are very common. Lack of visions and planning. They just can't do proper planning and fast pacing at the same time. Although in general there are a wide variety of projects to work on, few innovative ideas to be implemented.

Advice to Management

Be open minded and do planning with a clear vision.

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive with Apple/Google/etc
    Work life balance is, from what I hear, better.
    Good job security.
    Seattle is a very cool place to live.
    I enjoy being the underdog. Microsoft hardware is up and coming.

    Cons

    While there are a couple of cool projects, I'm waiting for Microsoft to release something exciting. We have been more of a follower so far.

    Pros

    Practically unlimited resources; cuttting edge projects, Chance to learn new everyday & developers heaven. Great benefits. Freedom to innovate and showcase your talent

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics and unclear decision making process; The leaders dont always hold up to their end and are not held accountable for their decisions, oftern we miss out on great opportunities just because a leader failed to acknowledge the potential or initiative doesnt align with their initiatives; That being said, we still have great leaders who are role models.

    Advice to Management

    Do your jobs! Please put more thought into strategies and future and hold yourself accountable, especially all partner engineers! And please have customer empathy!
