    Good people, too much politics

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)


    Plenty of smart and talented people, great benefits, great location, some cool technology and increasingly a lot of potential for the company as a whole under Nadella.


    If you're someone who wants to fit in and not push the status quo, not a bad place to be. If you're politically skilled and are great at winning consensus battles, great place to be. If you just want to build great products and not worry about politics, maybe somewhere else is a better fit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of senior and middle management got where they are during the 2000s, when the company didn't perceive itself as having many real competitors, and therefore rewarded political skill more than building great products people actually wanted to buy. Now that MS is the underdog in some key areas, management is trying to turn things around, but the old guard is standing in the way of that... sometimes without even realizing that's what they're doing. I'd love to see senior management do what they can to shake up that kind of thinking.

    Positive Outlook
