I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Leadership is turning the company ship and moving fast. Many are excited since MS used to be at the top of the world and no more. But the fire and been lit under their asses and it's movin'. Kinect, Windows 8, Surface, Pixel Perfect, all these products are a start to change the world and the 800 lbs gorilla is going to make a difference again.

Cons

Only join the Windows, Xbox, and Phone teams. Few other teams are promoting. Join one of the teams that Microsoft is seriously betting on for the long term of the company. The other teams are not given as much priority or budget for growth and promos.

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

    Pros

    This company has good work experiment and the salary there is also very high. Workers there are very nice and your mentors can teach you a lot of useful things not only in the coding area.

    Cons

    I don't think there is any downsides to working for MS, because I stay there not very long and what I met there are all awesome.

    Pros

    Microsoft is a good company to work for. It offers:
    - Good benefts, such as good pay, good health benefits, child care help
    - Many groups and products to work on, so there is a breadth of technological space covered
    - Very diverse work styles in different teams, some with v1 culture, other much more mature

    Cons

    - Smaller pay than other big companies in the field
    - Some benefits that others offer (like free food) are not seen
    - Some teams have a lot of process to follow, which slows them down
