I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great people. Great projects. Amazing benefits. $0.00 copay on doctor visits or any kind of medical procedures. Women get 6 weeks of maternity leave. Plus 3 weeks vacation. Digital advertising sales was awesome. MS had great sales support, excellent resources, and always had enough of a budget to do the things we needed to do, e.g., travel, entertain, business needs, etc. Every other company I worked for has had such tight budgets; it seems like I'm always struggling to get the help I need.

Cons

In the Dallas office, career advancement is limited because the majority of our operations were either out of New York or Redmond. If you're willing to move though, career advancement is nearly unlimited. MS is really good about not limiting you to functional silos. In their view, good talent is good talent and can be used in many different departments.

    Pros

    They do a little bit of everything. If you want to do it, you can probably do it at Microsoft.

    Cons

    The culture is frustrating, and it feels like the executive level decisions are completely detached from the wishes of the employees at times.
