    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, work life balance is better than the newer generation of tech companies (FB, Google, Amazon), well established company with virtually unlimited resources.

    Cons

    I'm sure it varies by team, but often feels like the company fosters more of a competitive than collaborative environment, even within the same team. Managers are hit-or-miss; your career can often depend on how lucky you were in getting a particular manager. Feels more "corporate" than other tech companies.
