Great flexibility in terms of working hours
Great perks
Having Microsoft on his resume is truly a great advantage

Cons

Microsoft a des outils et des logiciels pour faire à peu près tout et n'importe quoi. Au final, ça peut être un peu ennuyant d'utiliser les produits Microsoft sans cesse (très peu d'utilisation des outils ouverts).

Microsoft has tools and software to do pretty much everything. In the end, It can be annoying to use Microsoft products constantly (very little use of open source tools).
