Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Management is really good at allowing you time in your life to get it straight. As long as you meet your commitments there is no real pressure to over work.

Cons

Managers are chosen from those who want to be managers and have a good track record of performance. What this means is that you may get a manager who has no experience at it, or is a horrible people person.

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

    Pros

    Microsoft is located in Redmond, WA where you can have really nice weather during the summer. There are tons of nice and stimulating people in Microsoft, and tons of projects that are stimulating, challenging, and fun. I liked the food at the food court; there are diversity from pasta and burgers to pad thai and pho. You will absolutely love your experience at Microsoft. Plus, free sodas all the time.

    Cons

    There are not so many cons about working at Microsoft as an intern. But it is well known that their management somehow does not always work well; teams could be in a not-so-good relationship with other teams and all.

    Pros

    Good pay and very interesting jobs, co-workers are usually very bright and good at explaining solutions to problems if one arises.

    Cons

    Microsoft has shifted more from innovation to becoming a revenue-based company. Expect to put long hours
