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

    Pros

    Things are quite fair. Your contributions are visible to the entire subsidiary.

    Cons

    Very poor growth considering the subsidiary belonged to Microsoft.
    There is no clarity as to what (kind of) contribution will lead to good growth.
    Only way to grow good is to switch to other subsidiaries or engineering group.

    Pros

    Option to choose which task you have to work and when to work (depends on team)
    There are internal tools for everything and so it's easy to build something

    Cons

    You may not be credited/recognized for your work (Which is why I left the company)

    Advice to Management

    Gamify the work place if possible :P Achieving goals and milestones should raise the rating of employees (and so on :P)
