I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The leads truly care about their teams, and really care about the product and mission. Your work affects millions of users and you get a chance to work at the forefront of enterprise and consumer technology.

Cons

Sometimes it feels like there's a huge distance between the engineers on the ground versus those that make the big decisions that affect the whole company.

    Really focus on the people and don't rely on one persons assessment of a team. People who accomplish the day-to-day should know they are valued.
