    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    good benefits, stable company, good vision for products

    Cons

    Very poor management within the Azure AI 360 team that I was working under. They lacked vision and were interested in their own careers instead of meeting our customers needs. This is reflected in the fact that we were re-orged 4 time within a 18 month period.
