Pros

Great work-life balance, they care about growing you and helping to further your career. The benefits are amazing, there's great mobility within the company as a whole, and the work is interesting and engaging.

Cons

It's easy to overwork yourself. The "calibration" system is terrible.

    Pros

    If you want to solve tough problems and work with an amazing set of people, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    MS is more like a bunch of companies under a single brand rather than a single company, so opinions vary with whom you ask. Your group and manager will ultimately determine how happy/successful you are.

    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.
