I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working with great people is amazingly creative! You get pushed and you do your best because of it! If you don't like being pushed to work hard, achieve and work as a team to do amazing things, don't work here!

Cons

The hours are incredibly long, stressful, and if you aren't in the top 50% or so you will get pushed out after a couple of years. There is some back stabbing so you have to watch out for that!

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice working environment
    Good work/life balance
    Smart co-workers
    Lots of opportunities to learn new tech
    The benefit is excellent

    Cons

    Some teams are totally in a mess after a transition of focus to online service - quite a lot of the managers still don't understand what to do in the service world
    There are a lot of miscommunication and duplicate work which is a waste of resource
    The new review system is stupid
