    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good chances to work on many product lines. good medical benefit. opportunity to learn many techs. good for starter

    Cons

    performance review is a virus for this company, 10% constantly been kicked out every year.
    too limited views for people want to grow.
    many devs need to work over 50 hours to survive, or you drop to the 10% category. believe it or not.
