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

    Pros

    As a software developer, one can always find interesting projects/technologies to work on. Although benefits have been cut a lot, it's still very competative compared to other companies.

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy actually makes individual contributors less productive. Also, in past 10 years, the company has invested so much in mobile and search but the results are really unsatisfactory. Hope things will change little bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't understand why for every 6 ICs there is one lead whose job is basically going to meeting all day. The company can get rid all of them and still do well.

    Doesn't Recommend

    Disapproves of CEO
