    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, tough problems, lots of rope to grow and learn! MSFT has amazing benefits, competitive salaries and allows you to move across organizations fairly easily so you can go from consumer to enterprise products and learn along the way.

    Cons

    While MSFT has abundant resources, they face the classic innovator's dilemma with large cash cows and falling stars that they are very afraid of cannibalizing...that means innovation is often slower and done with a weary, cautious eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take risks - cannibalize yourself before someone else does. Let people take risks in pilots and prove things out. Don't get stuck in bureaucracy.
