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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, company has vast resources, work / life balance is acceptable

    Cons

    insular, internally focused, culture is one of complacency. Inept management all the way to the top, poor review system, one is judged by how well the political game is played, not by work done or accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no faith or belief that any in my management chain knows what they are doing - time to shake it up at all levels.

    Doesn't Recommend
