    Pros

    Microsoft is a giant ship and it has many internal tools & platforms to improve your productivity. Working experience at Bing is also very useful for getting the other jobs in the internet industry.

    Tech stack is MS specific and not open like others. Many middle level managers & principal engineers were from MS' office or windows team, which have limited experiences in search technology.
