Microtype does increase the size of the output PDF file by almost a factor of 2, but I don't consider that to be a problem. Maybe the compile time increase as a ratio is a non-linear function of the size of the document. Anyway, microtype significantly improves the appearance and readability of the document.

How old is your TeX Distribution? Using the microtype package hasn't increased the size of the pdf by much, if at all, for quite a while.

Good Luck,
