    I have been working at Microsoft for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great company with fantastic smart people across the world. It's trying to embrace a modern style that allows growth. Great benefits, flexible working environment, lots of smart people.

    Cons

    Local teams are caught up in politics from the top down. Talent passed over or left to stagnate in preference of graduates or friends. The new rating and review system is subjective. The company locally tries to embrace diversity, yet pushes out anyone who has a different view or approach.

    Cons

    The review system was never well done, in spite of promises to the contrary good people get pushed down to fit a curve.
