I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor for 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!
