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

Pros

Great pay and benefits. Opportunity for self-improvement is the best. If you are the type that likes to constantly learn, then jump on board, but it's a fire hose of information! Great managers and people to work with, but very high expectations, so be willing and ready to go overboard on delivery.

Cons

Travel, travel, travel. A lot of internal processes that take time away from your primary job and don't seem to make sense to your job. Did I say travel?

Advice to Management

Better onboarding processes instead of being thrown into the fire.
