    Pros

    Great company for diverse experience
    Really good benefits

    Cons

    If you want to move up the ladder gotta go to Redmond
    Most interesting opportunities are in Redmond/Seattle
    Many folks live in the MSFT bubble and aren't as in tune with what's moving/changing in the tech world.
    When you're in a satellite office, it's hard to build relationships and get hallway/informal channel information

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have worked for Microsoft for considerably less time than average. It was the best start for my career. The company really cares for its employees, as evident from its employee centric policies. Open door policy of managers, single occupancy cubicles and many more are policies which drive more confidence and affinity in employees towards working for Microsoft.

    Cons

    Nothing which is big but of course everybody has some. I would mention the performance review changes made recently as not good. It all depends on your reporting manager only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing specific.
