I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great products, awesome team. Real smart people.
Products have gigantic user base, very rewarding to see your work being used by so many people

Cons

Need to be more agile. Use existing tools instead of trying to build everything, more efficient that way. Concentrate on software development processes/documentation also.

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

    Pros

    Work with bright and talented teammates, great benefits, solid compensation, opportunity to work on products that have usage bases of millions / hundreds of millions, ability to change teams within the company (Microsoft's size as a strength)

    Cons

    Success depends significantly on the management within your product and the effectiveness of the managers you report to, coordination can be slow due to vast number of partner teams and stakeholders to coordinate with (size also a weakness)
