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

Pros

well paid.
Flexible working schedule.
privacy-everone gest an office (for the most staff)
good benefit package and discount card

Cons

Slow in motion.
Lots of departmental and team politics. You have to rally lots of people around you to get your ideas move forward.
Slow in getting a promotion - can take years to bump up one level.

Advice to Management

Be lean, responsive to the markets, and rid layers of the fake politics!

    I worked at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great compensation, fun activities, fabulous intern gifts- you can tell that money was really thrown your way as an intern.

    Cons

    Office work can get tedious, some interns were given projects that weren't utilized after they were gone.
