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

    Pros

    I was a Test Manager at Microsoft and I had to build a team from scratch, it was fun to work with Recruiting as they helped with getting the ball rolling, once I hired the testers, Microsoft has great training classes which brought the newcomers up to speed. I have not seen any other company spend this much time in training their new employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes projects took too long to complete

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    While working at Microsoft, I received great benefits and great bonuses. My fellow coworkers really made the job as enjoyable as it was. Great energy.

    Cons

    Management did not work cohesively together. Management also did not understand a lot of the new technology. It was hard to respect and look up to the management team since they could not answer a majority of my questions.

    Pros

    if every thing well around you , you will get a good bonus and salary

    Cons

    you don't learn or do too much as you are very busy on daily competition. The competition is not on innovation and deeper analysis. Employees are scared of trying new things as at the end what matters is not to have a failed project .
