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

Pros

Huge breadth of job opportunities for those working at the HQ location.
Great flexibility to get your job done and not have to work in a "clock in, clock out" environment
A lot of momentum with company direction with new leadership

Cons

Job demands can be taxing during cyclical periods (varies a lot by role/function)
Simplification efforts don't always take roadblocks out of the way
Redundant layers of tools, processes, and approvers slows the pace of business
