    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great People - Great work/life balance - New challenges everyday - Learning opportunities everywhere - Flexibility to work in things outside core role

    Cons

    - Too slow in getting ideas moving - Career development/performance reviews are not consistent across different teams. Everyone has their own ideas which they follow and you can never really count on your own merit being the decisive factor - A lot of opportunities are biased towards a particular person before they even appear

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to retain talent.

    I worked at Microsoft for less than a year

    Pros

    Great company spirit with space for questions, learning and development; Free breakfast, great colleagues and various events going on during the year. For a big company, it is good to have such a horizontal structure. Regarding the company, it is very hard to have a complaint.

    Cons

    Some roles are very specific (due to the sheer dimension of the company) and may thus feel redundant; People feel drawn in by the name and end up staying because of it, regardless of their affinity for a particular role.
