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

    Pros

    People are good, so peer learning is good.
    Provides very Good learning depending upon team, work is good\bad as per team
    Work Culture no more promotes employee care. Its all cost cutting.
    Employee Care and facilities are moderate compared to peers.

    Cons

    Compensation - They pay good compared to peers.
    Internal Change - The process of internal change of team makes the employee to resign by force by current manager, depending upon ego of manager.

    If you are not mine, you can't be of others also. :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve facilities, best engineers work for you.

    Improve process for internal change, make them employee friendly rather than management friendly.
