    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    WLB is there in a lot of orgs if that is what you want. i've had a good experience, but obviously not everyone will be as lucky. Depends on the organisation and managers.

    Cons

    Microsoft likes to think they are FANG, but they don't pay as well. 4 year cliff is real, and primary reason I'm leaving. D&I is generally good, but it can get a little silly sometimes/group think.
