If you're not a "native" MSFT employee, not so great. My company was acquired by Microsft

I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great benefits. Lots of resources.

Cons

If you are not considered one of "their own", you are not treated that well, even if your talents or skills are better than some MSFT employees. Seemingly lots of opportunties to move within the company, but it's not that easy and you pretty much have to know other people on other teams to make that happen.

    Review model makes this a place where only the most agressive and competitive can suceeed.
