I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than an 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 (more than an year)

    Pros

    One of the best in terms of perks, work environment and work resources. Gives independence to work on project and features.

    Cons

    Slow growth in terms of promotions and pay. Politics and more of a show game that brings people to limelight. No honest meritocracy
