    I have been working at Microsoft for more than a year

    Pros

    As an apprentice I have had the opportunity to work along side some amazing SDE's that have helped me learn the craft, grow my basic CS fundamentals, and receive weekly mentorship from my supervisor.

    Cons

    Work to develop a more concrete experience for your apprentices; such modeling it off the internship program.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    If you have a family, Microsoft benefits are best in class, for health insurance and 401k matching among other reasons.

    Cons

    The Dynamics org has tone-deaf management that no one trusts due to their frequency of allowing retaliation to happen against their employees. In particular, the location of South Bellevue is poor, especially for lateral moves, as any sort of networking happens on their main Redmond campus.
