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 8 years)

    Pros

    For a large company it offered me a great opportunity to start a new group. I was surprised by the flexibility.

    I enjoyed my time there

    Cons

    The flexibility I mentioned was early, these opps are closed now, it has become very metric driven.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. they know more than you think.
