I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Flexible working hour, free sodas, nice gym membership, parking well available, once a month a party with wine. For interns there was also a subsidized car rental -- a good thing to take to see around, even though not a necessity for commuting as the company accommodation is just across the road.

Cons

working in offices with very thin walls, if someone on the other side is having a lot of phone calls, it may get a bit disturbing. No free food as google has, having at least some fruit available through day would be nice...

    I have been working at Microsoft

    Pros

    Good environment, work colleagues are always helpful. Nice opportunity to learn new stuff and to grow professionally. Well, that pretty much sums it all for me.

    Cons

    There is some big pressure on you, whether it is explicit or implicit. Well, there aren't any other relevant cons for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the good work and drop the bad habits.

    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are nice and you have a chance to learn a lot on the job. Free beverages are a nice perk.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired as an FTE. Just when you think you've worked long enough as a contractor...nope.
