    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They treat employees really well. Employees aren't just chair-meat.

    Free and varied drinks from the fridges in the break room available any time.

    Great opportunities to learn about development and technology.

    No mandatory overtime, but plenty of opportunity for voluntary overtime (during which the pay is time-and-a-half and you're given free lunch during weekend overtime)

    Cons

    Usually contract positions, so will have to be laid off eventually. However, after the mandatory lay-off period (usually about 3 months) you can get hired back.

    Not many opportunities to move up within the QA area of the company.


  2. "Great environment"
