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

Pros

- Good benefits. This company takes good care of their employee.
- Opportunity to work with smart people and various products

Big company, lots of policies, sometimes the process is really slow. You have to deal with lots people and different teams to get things moving.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    if you're prepared to work like a dog you can definitely go places. there's plenty of flexibiity on hours too but you need to be disciplined.

    Cons

    work-life balance is almost non existent and it feels as if the organisation is purely scorecard driven now - nothing else matters apart from metrics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    place less emphasis on the scorecard and listen more to the feedback from employees who actually care about the state of the organisation.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
