I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Nice pay
The size of my team was just right so we could be very productive by meeting all at the same time.

Cons

Structure of the company hampers creativity

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put forth more effort into innovation and modernization. Microsoft has too much emphasis on their finances.

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with great people is amazingly creative! You get pushed and you do your best because of it! If you don't like being pushed to work hard, achieve and work as a team to do amazing things, don't work here!

    Cons

    The hours are incredibly long, stressful, and if you aren't in the top 50% or so you will get pushed out after a couple of years. There is some back stabbing so you have to watch out for that!

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, including health, life, 401, shuttle, meal cards. The work is good, fast, and the co-workers are enthusiastic. The campus is beautiful and Seattle is a fun city. Oh, also, the pay is amazing.

    Cons

    The job can sometimes move fast, and standing out can be difficult amidst the clutter. This job is software development and systems engineering, not theory or science.
