    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good package, fantastic work-life balance, awesome work-culture, industry defining bonus and helpful managers.

    Cons

    You have to constantly prove your mettle. More is expected in the form of Community work, cross-group collaboration, IP harvesting, helping others, mentoring new-comers and understanding group dynamics. This is a very dynamic environment. You will end up having reporting into multiple managers in a short span of time.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing at this point in time. But, as far as I can say, the top management is fantastic.

    Promote within to allow more job opportunities.

    Pros

    Good pay, great people. Always in the fast lane. If you works hard and show up everyday, you will be rewarded.

    Pros

    Health-care, 401K, Stock purchasing Plan

    Cons

    Micro-Managing management
    Horrible customers
    No protection from Managers
    Products that are not tested before shipped
    No/little career advancement. (People have worked 5 years without moving positions)
    Exceptionally small raises (14-40 cents)
    Horrible Bonus' (Nothing over $300 a quarter. Even if you sold over a million dollars of product, the bonus would not change.)

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging employees. Actually value employees. Be true to your employees, do not lie constantly to them.
