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

    Pros

    There is a lot of roles - but it also means to get a very rounded experience you would have to do different roles - but you can do them across different teams - so life stays interesting

    Cons

    if Promos and pay are you thing - this is not a fast paced young company - so temper expectations

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Lots of worldwide internal opportunites. Good place to work if you want varied experiences. Excellent pay and benefits compared to other companies out there. Sure there are exception to this but on the whole I think it is true.

    Cons

    Company's strategy may leave you scratching your head at times. Large company means team cultures can vary greatly. You may get stuck on a lousy team or you may be fortunate to work on a great team - likewise with management. Seemingly constant reorgs and office moves. Performance rating system enforces some will get low scores and low or no bonuses.
