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

    Pros

    Smart, passionate people, good career growth potential with international mobility.
    Open and honest feedback depending on your manager
    Huge company with many possibilities, though it is increasingly difficult to change roles within the company.

    Cons

    Constant change in recent years (multiple managers, org names, and bad communication to field teams within my division).
    The changes, and direction of the company are moving in a good direction overall but change management needs a review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to change review system to move beyond individuals and reward (at least partially) teams. The necessity to create 5's and then boot them out does not encourage team work.

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Microsoft encourages you to work hard, party harder and learn as much as you can.

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

    Pros

    Great learning resources- Microsoft has a great environment where you are encouraged to learn as much as you can about your field.
    Knowledgeable and passionate co-workers who always bail you out. You get to learn a lot from your peers.
    Garage- My personal favourite. You get to showcase your creativity and coding skills and earn prizes at the same time!
    Community-MS encourages people to give back to the community, both time and financial aid. I have seen people helping each other out.
    Work-life balance - Flexible working hours and work from home are an added bonus

    Cons

    1) You get addicted to the free food, leisure time and the above pros. Coming back to college and adapting was very difficult.
    2) You sometimes feel alienated when you realize that everyone can dance except you.
