    Pros

    Pick your manager, the good ones will excuse the things you don't get to. Network with other groups, pick a winning product, don't get tied down with a losing product. Benefits and perks are great, they are giving all sort of windows 8 goodies to the FTEs - while they are cutting medical coverage - go figure.

    Cons

    Work life balance is a joke unless you are very tight with your manager. Manage your own career, Microsoft will not love you.
