    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits (THE BEST ANYWHERE), fun people and positive culture. Microsoft honestly is my favorite company to ever work for, and I will forever remain a fan. They care a lot about their community, and are always willing to walk the walk when it comes to giving back. I have huge respect for their CEO Satya Nadella.

    Cons

    Toxic manager who drove a lot of good employees away, myself included. Manager has since been removed due to complaints. Made hourly wage, so was difficult to fit everything in a 40-hour week.
