    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Microsoft is iconic, as everybody knows. Having the brand behind you cannot be underestimated as a component of your success. Nothing gets done alone; you are always part of a team and have a massive amount of resources to support you. Their visionary leadership, under Satya Nadella and his management team means the potential for the company and you, as an individual, is unlimited.

    Cons

    As with any large enterprise, it's complex. The pace is unrelenting and it's critical that you build your core network in order to survive. Don't just do your job, manage your career and you'll be far more successful.
