Great place to work
Software Engineer in Windows Server (Former Employee) –  Redmond, WA2 March 2013
Overall I have practically all positive things to say about working Microsoft. Like any company, your happiness is greatly affected by your specific team's policies and people. I'd say the majority of people I worked with were happy and were great people.
Pros
encouragement to innovate, a certain degree of freedom to work on experimental projects

Program Manager (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC12 August 2014
Typical day consists of researching new design ideas, discussing them with other PMs, and creating mockups to visualize ideas.

The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to put on multiple different hats and see the development of a feature from start to finish.

Microsoft is a very big company.

A big company can do many good things, but on the another hand, do things very slowly.
