    I worked at Microsoft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Things are quite fair. Your contributions are visible to the entire subsidiary.

    Cons

    Very poor growth considering the subsidiary belonged to Microsoft.
    There is no clarity as to what (kind of) contribution will lead to good growth.
    Only way to grow good is to switch to other subsidiaries or engineering group.
