    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test II in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test II in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    There are smart people to learn from, but this relies upon getting the right team.

    Cons

    * If you are not a developer, make sure you are working in a team which sees your role as an asset and not as an unnecessary roadblock
    * Would advise waiting until the new CEO search is complete and the inevitably following re-orgs are completed. Anticipate a lot of people politicking in the next few months as the leadership changes
