    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    flexible work environment, smart people, lots of places to go within the company

    Cons

    many bad managers, political, difficult to get ahead if you value work life balance

    don't promote people to management positions just because they are good performers. Management skills should be key!
