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

Pros

Gigantic space, single office. Smart and knowledgeable colleagues. Large scale projects. Meaningful work. Reasonably good salary. No state income tax in WA.

Cons

Many jobs are about maintaining and improving mature products, thus less innovative. Innovative projects tend to be concentrated in certain fields. Overall, the company is currently less innovative than some of its competitors.

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

    Pros

    As an explorer intern I got to experience the three disciplines: dev, test, and pm. I got to interview at the end of my internship for an internship next summer. If you stay on the same team, it is very easy to get offered back a full time offer. There are tons of intern events within the department that I worked and with the interns as a whole. The work environment was great and everyone was very eager to help me. I loved the project that I worked on during the summer.

    Cons

    I am not a hug fan of the Seattle area. Redmond was very boring to me. I also did not have a car so I really couldn't get around much.
