    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for 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.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to learn, have flexibility on how you get your work done, encourage to take initiative, many great people to work with, lots interesting product and project to work on.

    Cons

    change is the norm, it is a challenge to get everyone on the same page, requiring strong influence and impact skill , great communication and relationship building skill.
