Great company full of bright, passionate individuals that lacks the clear vision and cohesion to bring it all together.

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

Pros

Being surrounded by bright and passionate individuals makes for a strong growth environment. The readiness of others to help makes this the best place I've ever worked!

Cons

Many "dinosaur" business groups *cough* Windows *cough* want to keep working the way they did when processors had only 1 core and sub-100mhz clock speeds. Times have changed and there are still a few BGs that hold on to the old way of doing things and won't push forward.

    I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good salary, flew me in for an interview. My manager is nice and supportive, flexible work schedule, good food, take care of their employees.

    Cons

    The job itself is not super interesting. It's a big company which means you are probably going to do a small part of something big, and I prefer doing big parts of smaller stuff.
