I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

great benefits, appreciation for good work, opportunities, scope, it's like a microcosm of several different products/companies all working together for the same common goal

Cons

sometimes slow because of its size. Sometimes has a higher tolerance for mediocrity than what is acceptable for a reputable brand. Sometimes the company pays for internal politicking

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company puts a lot of effort into making sure the employee is trained in all the necessary training that drives positive company image, integrity and business success.
    The environment is positive and they offer free drinks and great lunch options.

    Cons

    It is very easy to get sucked into "Microsoft is the best and only solution", while there are many solutions that other companies have that are really really good.
    Microsoft is a very big organization and the entire org does not turn on a dime anymore. However, things to change quickly when leadership pushes the company in one direction or another. In 4 years I had 8 different offices in 5 different buildings.
    The review system pits you against your peers in a way that creates unhealthy competition at times.
