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

    Pros

    Surrounded with brilliant people
    Great overall benefits and coverage (medical, dental, 401k matching, ESPP, charitable matching - money and time)

    Cons

    Broken review model rewards employees that are best at "playing the game" and not the best and brightest employees
    Management has suffered the most from the review model resulting in mediocre at best managers

    Advice to Management

    Focus on solving the employee morale problem which seems to be largely stemming from the review model.
