    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High salary, good benefits, smart people

    Cons

    Redmond is the worst place on earth and so is the traffic that comes with it, they will never win, it's not actually as easy to move internally as they make it sound, company culture is vicious and unwelcoming, there is a perception problem that they probably won't ever be able to kick

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing everything so top down. Stop thinking about all employees as robots/numbers; think a little bit more about the humans that work for your company and you will have higher employee satisfaction. Bring back a little bit of the emotion and intuition and creativity that can define really great marketing; not everything has to be so data-driven (see point on robots).
