    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II  in  Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    Great technical challenges
    Good work life balance
    Great perks and amenities
    Good pay
    Love the offices instead of cubicles

    Cons

    Too many managers and people who want to be one
    One person does all the work and has probably 2to 3 people managing them
    If you are lucky you will have a good manager who protects you from PMs and others.
