It is a world biggest IT company, everyone like working there. You can make a lot of friends there,and enjoy the working environment there!

They have all the smartest people there, you have to compete with them and that will be the hardest thing I think if you want to work there.

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

    Pros

    great perks, insurance is better than most, looks great on your resume

    Cons

    Absolutely ZERO work/life balance, 60-80 hrs per week standard, the review system is a popularity contest in which if you aren't the winner then you are likely the loser.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more devs and testers to unburden your devs from these new horrible expectations. Then retire and let brighter people with families run the company, you are running it into the ground.
