    Good and Bad

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an 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.
