    Pros

    Amazing work - life balance
    Fantastic facilities
    Supportive work culture
    Very skilled co-workers

    Cons

    Too much focus on numbers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The number based rating shouldn't be too much emphasized and pushed through, so that talented and skilled people will continue focus on quality and other non-quantifiable values like enthusiasm and calmness

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with great people is amazingly creative! You get pushed and you do your best because of it! If you don't like being pushed to work hard, achieve and work as a team to do amazing things, don't work here!

    Cons

    The hours are incredibly long, stressful, and if you aren't in the top 50% or so you will get pushed out after a couple of years. There is some back stabbing so you have to watch out for that!
