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

Pros

Loved the people I worked with. Great benefits.

Cons

Review model. I was competing with other admins at my level for a good review. In my organization you had to watch your back, keep track of your peers slip ups and their accomplishments to provide feedback for review time. When I returned from maternity leave I was surprised by my review score.

Compensation could have been better.

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great pay & benefits. The management on my team is phenomenal at recognizing the strengths of each individual and giving assignments based on those. I really like being able to work from home when I need. Additionally, I haven't been forced to work nights or weekends once my entire career.

    Cons

    I don't really like living in Redmond, and there aren't too many opportunities to work in other cities if you are a technical engineer.
