I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

They do a little bit of everything. If you want to do it, you can probably do it at Microsoft.

Cons

The culture is frustrating, and it feels like the executive level decisions are completely detached from the wishes of the employees at times.

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
