    Current Employee - Manager in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    if you're prepared to work like a dog you can definitely go places. there's plenty of flexibiity on hours too but you need to be disciplined.

    Cons

    work-life balance is almost non existent and it feels as if the organisation is purely scorecard driven now - nothing else matters apart from metrics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    place less emphasis on the scorecard and listen more to the feedback from employees who actually care about the state of the organisation.

    Current Employee - Supply Chain IV in Redmond, WA (US)
    Current Employee - Supply Chain IV in Redmond, WA (US)

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Fantastic benefits package. Competitive salary. Great for women (although I am a male).

    Cons

    Getting too political and slow. Too much talking. In spite of all the work we have done, we do not seem to get the fire on consumers. Stock is stagnant, Redmond centric (50% of work force works there).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get another CEO. if unable to grow, break up the company
