    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Managers are very understanding and give people work they enjoy, the section of the company I’m in (BAG) is like a mini company, so it’s small enough to go around and meet people, and explore other parts of the organisation. Our leadership also seems to care very much about people’s personal situations, their personal struggles, and helps accomodate everyone. Our environment feels very inclusive and fun!

    Cons

    Standard con of a big company - sometimes you feel very isolated from coworkers and other parts of the company. Compensation is not that competitive
