I have been working at Microsoft part-time (more than an year)

Pros

a well-structured company, as a part-time student working there, employers are patient to teach you stuff as long as one wants to learn

Cons

too well structure and hierarchy, couldn't feel the passion about creativity or its own products

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong, values based culture (in Australian subsidiary) focused on personal development and rewarding high achievers. Very high average IQ and capability of staff. Good alignment of personal goals to company goals. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    High pressure, more and more revenue driven. Quarterly reporting, forecasting, pipeline management is everything, at expense of customer relationship and long term outcomes. Some teams dysfunctional due to poor leadership, not being sorted out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a longer term approach, continue to invest in the best and not focus as much on keeping the market happy from one quarter to the next.
