    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fun technologies for potential projects

    Cons

    I have never worked a place that is so hard to get people to work as a team. If you are at a large site, it might be different, but if you are at a remote office, it is horrible. Even though things seem to be changing from the press releases it still remains the same Microsoft internally.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good salary. Lots of perks and discounts on Microsoft products.

    Cons

    Way too much micro managing going on. You would think a company that tells you they hire the best of the best would let you work without having to constantly check in or answer to 5 people every day. Lots of pointless conference calls. Lots of redundant management. Hiring is more about who you know, not your merit or experience, or worse, not to fill your AA quota.

    Advice to Management

    Hire based on who is best qualified for the job, not what makes your "diversity" numbers look better. Also, let go and trust your employees to do the right thing, and then verify. Don't verify every 3 minutes.
