    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is specific to Microsoft India.

    1) You have a really good work-life balance
    2) Lots of office perks
    3) Lots of events going on like Hackathon, Data Science challenge, etc.
    4) Really helpful mentor

    Cons

    1) My work was kind of routine. Some of the interns got really cool projects to work on. Project assignment is based on luck.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility and most of the managers don't do micro managing. To that extent, it is good. The flexible work hours and there is no attendence in the company. Employees can walkin any time and leave any time.

    Cons

    The manager's opinion is the highest and the last thing. The manager can make or break one's career. If the manager is playing foul game with one of the employee, there is very little that can be corrected. Because, at the end of the day, what the manager says is final. The skip level manager or top management does not have any time to oversee if some managers are playing foul game and pushing their favourites to the higher positions and spoiling other employees chances.

    Advice to Management

    Though there are systems in place to check this kind of problems, largely they are defunct and only for name sake. Wake up Microsoft.
