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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Generous benefits. Plenty of resources and leeway to do your work. They place a lot of trust in their employees to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Lots of competition, vertical movement is difficult. Usually have to move out to move up. Stack ranking can work against you if you're a solid performer but not ambitious (department dependent). If you are ambitious then get in line. Work/life balance will likely suffer if you want to move up the chain.
