I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It is a world biggest IT company, everyone like working there. You can make a lot of friends there,and enjoy the working environment there!

Cons

They have all the smartest people there, you have to compete with them and that will be the hardest thing I think if you want to work there.

Advice to Management

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, flexible hours, great benefits. Lots of opportunities to move within MS - but even internal candidates have to go through the same process as external ones.

    Cons

    Performance rating system. Too biased towards "visibility" - you have to make sure others are aware of the work and the impacts to have any chance of promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the baggage of several layers of management - many of whom are very set in their lazy ways
