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

    Pros

    Loved the people, the benefits, and the job! I enjoyed the flexibility to work from home and come into the office when necessary. It was refreshing to work for a large, stable company after coming from several start-ups that were not as sucessful.

    Cons

    There can be excessive bureaucracy that comes with working for a large company. Management can be limited in their authority to "make things happen" in some situations. The work environment is very flexible and extremely positive.
