Pros

Most of the folks that work here are super bright and fun to work with. The software projects can be interesting but there is also lots of legacy code that just needs tweaks with every release.

Cons

Frequent changes to product plans and management.

    Pros

    Microsoft offers the opportunity to work on the forefront of new technologies, dogfood Microsoft products, and visibly impact users on a global scale. Generally, management is good from top to bottom, and pay, benefits, and work-life balance are excellent. As long as you are meeting and exceeding expectations, you go home when you are satisfied with your day's work. There is a clear, incremental advancement path unlike some other big 4 companies. Possibly most importantly, Microsoft is on the rise and beginning to innovate at a high rate.

    Cons

    Your specific vision may not always align with the company's goals. There is no free food.
