    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative and flexible schedules. Microsoft has good benefits and wealth of learning opportunity because it has huge selections of articles, books, and media in the library.

    Cons

    Depending on the group(s) you're in but some groups practice discrimination and only hired their own kind of people (ie..East Indian People).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more involved in employee selection and careful on who you put in charge of hiring. Group diversity is most important and harnessing the most talents.

    Former Employee - Account Executive in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of resources, career mobility and strong investments in employee development. Product quality is high, pricing and policies are transparent. Limited travel in most roles is good for family life.

    Cons

    Low innovation value for customers. Intensely political and bureaucratic. Not a great culture for professional sales people. The company is focused on technology, not customers. The senior management has been there too long. They need a new crop of leaders who are willing to overthrow the old orthodoxy in favor of a new, customer-centric path of innovative products.
