    Former Employee - Consultant in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    Smart people, great pay, great benefits, like Orca cards, lockers, free soda, even for vendors. Incredible to think your work has global impact.

    Cons

    Lots of corporate bureaucracy which makes it difficult for people to focus on the mission. Execution mode all the time, little time for strategy.
