I worked at Microsoft full-time for 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 for more than a year

    Pros

    Open and friendly environment. Access to technology and outstanding resources. Great oportunity to work alongside with the greatest minds of the IT Industry. Strong commitment to Work/Life Balance.
    Recognition. These are just some of the things I can say and that I've experienced from working in MSFT Support.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything to say on this matter. Except maybe that it does not have any cons. Best Place to Work awards several years in a row make my point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I never, at any time, felt I was mislead as to what my objectives were in Microsoft. From day one we all knew what we were working to achieve. I can say that, in my opinion, Management was both a helping hand and someone that recognizes when you've done a good job. Probably the best people I've ever worked for.
