    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Good if you want decent working hours. They are flexible with working arrangement (work from home) and treat their employees with respect. Performance review, for all its flaws, is a amture process and usually fair.

    Cons

    Not the most exciting work. Bureaucracy can be a little annoying at times. If you want your career to be exciting and take off, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks.
