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

    Pros

    Great benefits and it is a great place to be early in your career (years 3-5).
    Takes the competition seriously
    Good use of its own technology internally
    Excellent community focus and gives back/encourages employees to do so too

    Cons

    Very political work enviornment; field leadership can lack integrity
    Career moves/relocations expected frequently (2-3 years) to progress career
    Work life balance is the responsibility of the employee regardless of work volume and expectations
    Human resource department is very junior and lacks leadership for such a big company

    Advice to Management

    Consider having a greater presence in Silicon Valley.
