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

Pros

a well-structured company, as a part-time student working there, employers are patient to teach you stuff as long as one wants to learn

Cons

too well structure and hierarchy, couldn't feel the passion about creativity or its own products

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

    Pros

    Amazing opportunities, amazing impact on peoples lives, amazing opportunities to contribute to technology and development. Also amazing opportunities to develop your own skills and career, to connect with wonderful specialist.

    Cons

    During my years of working in Microsoft I haven't found any true "Cons", only challenges to overcome, like the huge information flow. Every day in Microsoft is a wonderful challenge. I've been to MSFT only a few years but only keep on going to be in shape and up for the challenges, loving it!
