    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    flexibility, resources, talented people to work with

    Cons

    pay and benefits; pay is below market and benefits are not as fruitful as before
    career path is limited in the field; hard to maintain strong employees in such a competitive local market

    Advice to Management

    management seems surprised that not everyone wants to sign on for the constant change and limited transparency
    too often, this change is happening to employees, not with them


  2. "Good company, average company culture."

    Pros

    Work/life balance is by far the best reason to work for Microsoft. As long as you get your work done, management is very understanding of the necessity of making sure you dedicate the right amount of time and energy to your personal life.

    Cons

    Not so great pay for a company this size, weak culture...can sometimes feel "lonely and not welcoming."

  3. "Very good"
