I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

They do a little bit of everything. If you want to do it, you can probably do it at Microsoft.

Cons

The culture is frustrating, and it feels like the executive level decisions are completely detached from the wishes of the employees at times.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free soda. That is about it.

    Cons

    Poor management
    Low salary
    Seems to hire 70 % of their people as contractors
    If you think out side the box, then you will not succeed at Microsoft

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, please keep tabs on what your managers are doing. More than once highly competent people leave the business because their managers are not competent for their roles. Many of them try to protect their own jobs by putting down innovation.

    Doesn't Recommend
