I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Very rewarding work environment for most of the people I know.

Cons

The company used to be filled with the smartest people in the world. Now, not so much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to a 6 month review. The one year cycle is way too long and it's letting the lazy charge at the end for the high review scores. It happens a lot more than you realize. Very disheartening for those of us who want to do a good job and build great products full time.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Creativity, the amazing people; The fact that you can have a vision, prove it works and then create a team to deliver it!

    Cons

    Senior Management out of touch, rating system means people compete with others instead of focusing on being an R & D success!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ditch the current Appraisal rating process; focus on new development and creativity; stop chasing other markets inventions AFTER they have launched.....
