    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to lead industry, Smart People/Team, excellent resources, great campus, on the job learning

    Cons

    decision making centered in Redmond, not enough support to learn and grow

    Invest in building learning experiences for people - often the people who fall are the ones who have the ability and courage to take things much further along.
