I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Microsoft is large and stable. Windows phone is a new product with potential

Cons

Windows phone is very political and certain groups within windows phone more so. Lots of emails and noise. too much rat race stuff like send more emails and ppts to be visible. Not much flexibility in certain groups. Do what your boss tells ya or suffer the consequences. Stack ranking review system causes people to sometimes worry about themselves and also causes good employees to fall in low ratings. You cannot move groups within microsoft if you have a low rating so if for some reason your manager doesnt like you and gave you a bad rating, you are stuck with him or you quit the company.
