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.

    Lots of opportunities in any area of work you are interested in.

    Policies and Procedures, not as Agile as smaller companies, some good managers, some bad managers.
    You often feel just like another number in a big company.
