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

Pros

Pay, vacation, autonomy is good. It's amazing to work for a company that has such a big imprint on the world.

Cons

The company claims to have left stack ranking behind, but it will take years to put the mindset and culture behind them, if they ever do. They've effectively remove any nature inclination anyone has to collaborate with the management system they've built.

Advice to Management

Minimize individual contribution and emphasize team effectiveness. Get over the idea that calibrations have any hope of working or could possibly be fair. Read, "Lord of the Flies".
