    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great, smart people, variety of projects. Each new group is like a different company. One can get varied experience.

    Cons

    Unless you reach out, the experience can be limited to what you ask for. If you are just happy with development, you will only get that. To get a well rounded experience, you need to know the whole nine yards. You need to ask to get that.
