    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You work with very smart people
    The benefits are excellent and HR does a lot for you
    There are many interesting projects and there is great opportunity for mobility in the company
    Some people thrive at Microsoft, others don't. It isn't for everyone.

    Cons

    Projects often fall victim to politics
    Planning changes too frequently as management is in constant flux
    Too little attention is paid to user-centric design.
    Somehow groups of great individuals become terrible teams at Microsoft. Individuals can often gain greatly at the expense of a project or team.
    Very hard to be entrepreneurial. Great if you can follow the crowd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Test users outside of the Redmond area
    Don't change direction every six months
    Not everything in the world happens in Redmond
    Listen more to your business partners, don't always take control

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
