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

Pros

Cons

+ Image/perception + Businesses could leverage each other more + Typical politics, but doesn't feel worse than other large companies

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice campus, individual offices, perks, smart coworkers, excellent work life balance

    Cons

    Slow release cycle, product decisions often made by group consensus which makes the product less interesting. Product roadmap often reactionary to industry

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good working environment, lots of smart people. Good salary and benefits. Easy enough to move to different teams/divisions if you want to work on something different.

    Cons

    They do pretty much everything, so you might get stuck working on a less-than-exciting part of a product that no one has ever heard of. There are also too many layers of management/it's too big of a company.
