    Current Employee - Product Marketing Manager in Sydney (Australia)
    Current Employee - Product Marketing Manager in Sydney (Australia)

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

    Pros

    - 70% can get away with doing mediocre work, with minimal effort, and still get a great salary.
    - Ability to work from home
    - benefits such as health care
    - most of the products truly sell themselves

    Cons

    - all about metrics, spreadsheets, reporting on the past vs. making real impact for the future.
    - No real power to influence most marketing, creative, product, or strategy unless you work in Redmond. Marketing positions should be renamed to 'spreadsheet manager'.
    - Budget cuts every year make you feel like a loser in a company with tremendous revenue growth - always expected to do more with less every year.
    - POLITICAL warfare. Get far by shouting your mediocre work from the rooftops vs. doing stellar work and actually spending time with customers and partners.
    It's more about how well you can get into the good books of key managers vs creating a positive impact/doing a great job.
    If you love to brown nose, trample your colleagues and managers to make your way to higher positions... It's a good place for you to work.
    - Many managers with very low to no emotional intelligence.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
