I worked at Microsoft as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Flexible working hour, free sodas, nice gym membership, parking well available, once a month a party with wine. For interns there was also a subsidized car rental -- a good thing to take to see around, even though not a necessity for commuting as the company accommodation is just across the road.

Cons

working in offices with very thin walls, if someone on the other side is having a lot of phone calls, it may get a bit disturbing. No free food as google has, having at least some fruit available through day would be nice...

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    good 401K, good salary...good products

    Cons

    most senior program managers in technical teams suffer from lack of base computer science knowledge which makes them make wrong trade offs.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good brand, independence at work & celebration of achievement

    Cons

    Flamboyance & connections mostly take you far! No place for a silent galdiator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "One may still be good even if the last year wasn't good" & "organisational memory shouldn't necessarily fade away along with the last manager"
