I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I've been at Microsoft for 7 years and the thing that is best about it is that it is truly 'choose your own adventure'. There is great freedom to choose a path whether it is by function (changing from product to marketing to sales) to career trajectory (be the next VP, choose a slower growth, aim for work/life balance), etc.

Cons

It has all of the typical challenges of a large company - difficulty in making decisions. In addition, Microsoft is just learning how to coordinating across divisions.

    Pros

    At Microsoft, any employee has the ability to control his/her career. There are any number of opportunities to move and develop based on the skills and career interests that one may have. In addition, the organization is full of some of the best and brightest in the industry.

    Cons

    Some of the most prevalent downside of most large organizations also exist at Microsoft. For example, bureaucracy and political positioning are normal parts of many roles at Microsoft.
