I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Working with some of the smartest people tackling real hard problems
- Great benefits
- Opportunity to move around and try a lot of different roles and get exposure to different businesses without leaving the company.

Cons

- Slow decisions, lot of overhead due to various internal processes and reviews which are unnecessary.
- Career growth has begun to slow down across the board as company is not growing much
- Bloated; lots of roles (especially in Marketing) are totally unnecessary; there is also a lot of overlap.

    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Seattle, WA

    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!
