I have been working at Microsoft part-time (more than an year)

Pros

a well-structured company, as a part-time student working there, employers are patient to teach you stuff as long as one wants to learn

Cons

too well structure and hierarchy, couldn't feel the passion about creativity or its own products

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Always lots to do, can be as good as you make it.

    Cons

    Impressive inefficiencies, constant churn, powerpoint culture,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow processes and strategies to mature for at least a year before changing things, the constant churn is exhausting.
