    I have been working at Microsoft full-time

    Pros

    Awesome learning opportunities with many of the smartest people working around you. Lots of great mentorship available to you as well to guide you along the way.

    Cons

    There isn't much opportunity for someone young to really make an impact. I am a bigger believer of learn by doing, but at Microsoft they do not have a lack of talents and believe seniority is the path to fairness, which I can see why it may work.
