Microsoft is a great place to work, but it's a very, very big company.

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

For all the bad raps Microsoft gets, it still changes the world. There are few places where the things you work on have a bigger impact. On top of that, great pay, benefits and working conditions.

Cons

The company is very large, and navigating the organization is complicated.

Also, the company faces some serious competitive and strategic challenges to its core businesses.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    Wide range of experiences, locations and challenges available. Ability to realize these is dependent upon superiors, department and yourself/performance. Poor results will limit your ability to move around and move up so stay focused on the "commits".

    Cons

    Lots of bureaucratic things to slow you down.... Meeting merry-go-round on a daily basis...
