I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great salary and benefits. Very rewarding work environment for most of the people I know.

Cons

The company used to be filled with the smartest people in the world. Now, not so much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to a 6 month review. The one year cycle is way too long and it's letting the lazy charge at the end for the high review scores. It happens a lot more than you realize. Very disheartening for those of us who want to do a good job and build great products full time.

    Think more about real problems to solve instead of lots of disconnected cool features that seem interesting in a ppt presentation
