    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Good offices. For self-starters development opportunites are there and an ability to make an impression and deliver quality results exists.

    Cons

    Confused poor quality senior leadership. Lack of strategy and direction especially across product groups. Still a very entrenched old-school mentality so unless you learn how to play in this arena you will not fit in. You have to fit in first and change from within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better co-ordinated strategy. Fewer levels in the org (but don't take out the lower ones!!!)
