      I have been working at Microsoft full-time

      Pros

      Perks are the best. From salary through medical and healthcare, the company pays for your gym and fitness band! You've the luxury of leaves and holidays as you please. The experience of a global company which makes a difference to the world.

      Cons

      Highly competitive environment. Cut throat competitions to scale up. Slow paced career progression comparitively. Metrics and KRAs are not easily achievable. You really need to work hard/smart to get the prices

      Advice to Management

      While changes are good and progressive, employees may need time to adapt, breathe and imbibe them!

      I worked at Microsoft

      Pros

      Big brand and stress free work

      Cons

      Microsoft leadership is currently not having a focussed strategy it seems. It is always a trial and error which they call "Growth Mindset". Growth Mindset is actually taking decision and executing it to make it right than reversing those decision at later stage.

      Advice to Management

      Be Honest and transparent with employees. Invest to make great leaders
