Approves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Team work
Opportunities for leadership and development
Leadership openness and availability to meet
Develop technical skills
Great people to work with
Resume builder

Cons

In busy times work-life balance can be somewhat difficult
Mostly contract work, which can be ok for some people but you don't get many of the Microsoft benefits
Everyone is a rockstar, so you do have to work hard to stand out

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

    Pros

    1) Excellent compensation
    2) Very interesting projects to work on that reach many customers around the world

    Cons

    1) Political -- getting things done can involve getting buy in from many stakeholders
    2) Shipping excellent software is valued in words, but not in actions. Deadlines are set before designs are finalized and costing is in, causing non-critical work to be regularly cut.
