    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is not secret that Microsoft is very good at selling and marketing its product. If you are in sales, you will learn a lot about how to run your business.

    It has world class tools and processes available for employees.

    Cons

    Too monotonous. Too focussed on selling licenses rather than selling solutions to customers.

    At times, goals of one team contradict with goals of other team, creating disharmony in teams.

    Advice to Management

    Innovations are not created by just talking about it. You need to create an environment for employees to think differently, think out of the box.
