    Current Employee - Solution Specialist in Detroit, MI

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best products, great benefits and tons of potential.

    Cons

    1. You'll spend most of your time looking over your shoulder to see who's launching arrows in your back.
    2. You'll go through at least 2 managers per fiscal year.
    3. If you're not part of the "local Microsoft mafia" then you have no chance of getting a decent rating in the "STANK RANKING PROCESS"
    4. Your personal life will go to hell. No work life balance whatsoever.
    5. Your health will decline and you'll most likely need to take a "leave of absence"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Change the culture. You're losing unbelievable talent due to the "old school" politics that middle management thrives on.
    2. Get rid of that ridiculous stack ranking process. Teammates stab each other in the back, managers throw direct reports under the bus and a lot of talented people are walking out the door because of it.
    3. You're freaking Microsoft for god's sake! It's time to start matching Google and Apple in terms of innovation, creativity and offering an exciting place to work. Don't fear change!
