I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The pay and benefits are great. Microsoft is a very competitive work environment with a lot of really smart and talented people. If you thrive in this type of setting, it is a awesome place to work.

Cons

The company as a whole isn't in growth mode like many tech companies are at the moment. Bureaucracy is definitely an issue when trying to push for change as well.

    Cons

    Poor culture, they need big help, no one works for Microsoft but they work for themselves...pathetic culture...people are passioante about keeping job, not about products..or innovation...they have no standards in selecting managers...so very poor quality managers...
