    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits go beyond just 401k and insurance. You get extend parental leave for new children adopted or birthed, father and mother alike. They give you a health savings account and reimburse you for fitness stuff yearly

    Cons

    They have slowly moved away from being for their employees. They took lunches and made them shorter, much shorter! Then they stretched hours made them longer much longer. You use to work m-f but they took that away as well. 12 hour shifts 30 minute lunch 4-3 days a week. If you have a family it’s not very family friendly schedule as well all know kids are only out of school during summer and weekends. You really have no room for advancement but they preach that you do. They on a coporate level have good values but at a working level those are not displayed If your a female you will really struggle. Females are not treated fairly or given as many opportunities. Holiday pay doesn’t cover your time off work anymore. Sick time only covers a staffing model of people who work 8 hours not 12.

    Benefits, 401k, Medical, Dental, Vision, ESPP are all excellent.

    Cons

    Microsoft Data center's have terrible morale and no career structure, if you are looking for long term goals and career growth look else where.

    I worked at Microsoft for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy access. Freedom to work as you see fit.

    Cons

    Frustrating code to debug, since so many individuals have had a hand in the construction, without any over arching design configuration.
