    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Microsoft is a great company to work for. Compensation & benefits are competitive, work / life balance is great, and career progression opportunities are there if you seek them out.

    They work hard at culture, which seems to pay dividends on the whole, though there can be a group vs group mentality at times.

    Cons

    It is a slow moving beast, and bureaucracy can get in the way of getting things done.
