I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

Good people to work with
Managers who tried to help my career (not always skilled at doing so)
Good work life balance
a chance to work on products that many people will use

Cons

very Redmond centric, I was at a small office and we were less important
too much overhead, too few developers managed by too many
you have to sell yourself and your accomplishments to get ahead

Recommends

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Scope and impact of work
    Smart co-workers
    Great benefits - parental leave + medical + vacation + medical all paid for
    Good pay
    Career growth

    Cons

    Some of the managers are incompetent. But have seen them eased out to non-management roles.
    Not the highest paymaster - there are other companies in the Seattle area that pay higher

    Pros

    Working with cutting edge technologies and with the best people in the field. I have the freedom to explore and grow.

    Cons

    It is a very large organization. That brings policies that you must apply to and not always the flexibility you would want.
