Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Gigantic space, single office. Smart and knowledgeable colleagues. Large scale projects. Meaningful work. Reasonably good salary. No state income tax in WA.

Cons

Many jobs are about maintaining and improving mature products, thus less innovative. Innovative projects tend to be concentrated in certain fields. Overall, the company is currently less innovative than some of its competitors.

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft has a fantastic benefit package and you get to work on projects that potentially millions of people will use.

    Cons

    They are working to change this now, but nobody works together at Microsoft. Individuals are out for themselves and different divisions will sabotage another divisions work if it helps them.
