I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

At this satellite office: Pay is great relative to other companies in the area; large enough office to have a good community and café; very intelligent peers.

Cons

Work-life balance depends on role and manager; large enough office to offer enough training opportunities; limited opportunities to expand outside of the services arm of the company.

    "Strong solid company, more business than engineering focused, lots of bureaucracy"

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, work life balance is better than the newer generation of tech companies (FB, Google, Amazon), well established company with virtually unlimited resources.

    Cons

    I'm sure it varies by team, but often feels like the company fosters more of a competitive than collaborative environment, even within the same team. Managers are hit-or-miss; your career can often depend on how lucky you were in getting a particular manager. Feels more "corporate" than other tech companies.

    Pros

    First 10 years were productive and collaborative.

    Cons

    Last 10 years added so many layers of management everything fell apart. no one knew what anyone else did. Lost in a sea of confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the Review system
    Stop off-shoring jobs. Customer around the world are leaving because of this.
