    I worked at Microsoft (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, great learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Despite an overhaul of the Annual review process last year, it is still very broken and continues to pit everyone against each other which causes lots of bad behavior. HR tries to claim it doesn't, but everyone knows that it does. It also remains very subjective and the whole process lacks integrity. In fact, I believe that broken review process is the number one problem across Microsoft.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the annual review process for real, infuse it with objective measures, and ensure that it is done with integrity across the board.
