    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    MS is an incredible company with numerous highly sophisticated internal resources available to help you achieve your goals.

    Cons

    As Companies go, I'm not going to through a stone here.... the overall experience there is vastly up to the individual and their ability to manage their career. If you are ready to manage your career proactively, the tools, processes and people are there to help.

    Pros

    The work is challenging, the people are incredibly intelligent and they take care of their employees in just about every way possible.

    Cons

    Way too many meetings, process and procedure can be burdensome and it's hard to change a lot of things that really don't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    We're starting to do this already, but my advice would be to seek outside guidance and counsel on changing things up, operationally and otherwise.
