Pros

Just about everything! Food is great and cheap, work-life balance allows for me to actually be a normal person outside of the weekends. Benefits are next level, people are incredible, truly if you have ever worked at a place and loved it, I guarantee it is better over at Microsoft. I know because that's how I felt leaving my last job.

Cons

With such a large company and campus, it is easy to feel like you are being sucked into something overwhelming. As long as you make a few lifelines through your manager or coworkers, it can be managed.
