I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Work with very smart people, great compensation/benefits package, great impact in pretty much anything you do.Cons
Very poor EQ in some management, poor team work, people are after their own interest. Stack-ranking system was "discontinued" opening, but still there behind doors. Not a whole lot of collaboration spirit in general.Advice to ManagementAdvice
More transparent accountability in the overall health of their teams. Value work-life balance at higher levels, if management has no life, it is hard to thrive in overall healthy life style. Good management removes blocks and provides guidance, not the opposite.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Microsoft.Interview Details
Application was straight forward with a cover letter, resume and other common questions. This was then followed up by an online interview where you had to answer some questions, mostly standard ones like name your best qualities etc. After that it was an assessment centre involving two presentations and one final interview with one of the managers. As a note they included both in the same day.Interview Questions
