I have been working at Microsoft as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Pay, stability, work/life balance (big corp, not held too accountable for much), Seattle-based, working with some tech legends

Cons

Lack of culture, feels stale, they're changing things up but there's only a few groups that have a great culture and you have to know what you want beforehand to get yourself there. Little impact, waterfall methods. Median age 40+

    Pros

    Salary and career progression is very good if you can pick a good industry and think and execute in collaboration with your team.

    many sucky managers infest the place. While training is given, managers are not typically well held to account to be excellent.
