I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than an 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 worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good brand, independence at work & celebration of achievement

    Cons

    Flamboyance & connections mostly take you far! No place for a silent galdiator.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "One may still be good even if the last year wasn't good" & "organisational memory shouldn't necessarily fade away along with the last manager"

    Pros

    MS is big company, and you get to interact with all kinds of people, touching all kinds of technologies, very good exposure.

    Cons

    Way too many people needs to be convinced for a project to fly.
