I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The pay and benefits are great. Microsoft is a very competitive work environment with a lot of really smart and talented people. If you thrive in this type of setting, it is a awesome place to work.

Cons

The company as a whole isn't in growth mode like many tech companies are at the moment. Bureaucracy is definitely an issue when trying to push for change as well.
