No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great benefits (including the new Health Plan) and pay. As a large company, there are many opportunities for advancement in a role, and moving to different roles is encouraged. You'll work with some of the smartest and most talented people you'll ever meet.

Cons

A highly competitive and political environment. While this breeds hard work, being stack-ranked against your teams and peers creates an environment where self-promotion becomes the road to advancement, encouraging employees focus less on what employees could accomplish as a team, and more on setting themselves up each year to sell what they've done as an individual. Work-life balance is generally not possible if you wish to succeed.
