    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of new technology. Work with really sharp people. Giving program is great.

    Cons

    Starting as an industry hire, I've always worked as part of a team and it has hurt me here. While I've stepped up to do some of the grunt work for the team, I've been moved around and fail to get promoted. There's very little control over when your personal life dissappears to ship the product. Massive re-orgs can tear effective teams apart.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of stack rankings.
