    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good salary but lots of benefits. Working with latest technology and lots of support for training.

    Cons

    Lots of change - org changes every year and whole groups can disappear if not aligned to the latest direction.

    Advice to Management

    Difficult to do but try and build orgs which can flex with the changes rather than have to be completely renewed.
