    I worked at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    People are really nice and open, and the seniors are willing to listen. Staff meetings are pretty casual. Free coffee, snacks and other drinks are provided in office. There's also gym in the building for employees to use, which is really cool. We also have a dining and a cafeteria in the company, and a variety of other restaurants around, so lunch was always exciting.

    Cons

    Sometimes you might have to work overtime.You might also need to do some extra work for other teams when they need your help. But that's the only thing I can think about so far, and I guess this kind of stuff happened in a lot of companies. So really nothing special I can think of...

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Each day at Microsoft is a progressive discovery of how less I know.You name the vendor, the platform,I can give you in writing we will have it deployed somewhere in our network. I unabashedly claim that Our network is the most diverse network in the whole galaxy. Its a humbling experience to work with so many awesome Network Rock-stars and equally incredible leaders/execs.

    Cons

    The cross colloboration across teams is not worth the name. I mean One microsoft is more on paper and less in reality.
