Despite reservations about Microsoft's future (esp in the consumer space) it treats its employees really well.

Current Employee - Finance Manager in Redmond, WA (US)

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

-Respects work/life balance, invests strongly in employees' personal development
-Inclusive and diverse company culture
-People generally change roles every 18-24 months, so lots of opportunities to continue learning

Cons

-Decision-making needs to be more agile in order to catch up to competitors. Because of the many divisions at Microsoft, there's a fair amount of bureaucracy/politics
-Stack-ranking employees (i.e. top 20%, bottom 10%) within teams hurts morale, esp. in high-performing teams
-Cafeteria food not nearly as impressive as other tech companies/startups
