    Horrible

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Paid well. Company looks extremely good on the resume. Campus is absolutely gorgeous and the flexibility that came with the job was fantastic.

    Cons

    Contractors are treated like second class citizens which lends to an overall horrible company culture. If you want to enjoy San Francisco by living there, the commute is a bit of a killer. It's sad watching companies get bought as the employees get laid off in waves leaving a ghost crew for years to come.
