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

    Pros

    The overall culture & values is amazing. It is for sure one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    There is a lot of competition between employees, and sometimes people coming from other companies don't get the competitive culture right away.

    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. Their are a lot of opportunity if you want it. There is plrnty of food to eat around the area and the people you work with care about their jobs and great to work with. There are a lot of perks being a Microsoft employee

    Cons

    The company is very large and you can easily fall in the cracks if you dont fight to stand out. Parking can be a nightmare depending on the building you work in. The company contracts way to many people instead of hiring people on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget about the little guy.
