Very fast pace with very intelligent co-workers

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Group Finance Manager
Current Employee - Group Finance Manager

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

ability to do most anything from switch careers (marketing to finance then to operations)
work with very talented people who push you to learn more and do your best
fantastic finance rotation programs especially for those who want to work internationally

Cons

becoming more rigid due to size
politics is taking more of a driving role rather than innovation focus
work/life balance is less than ideal

Advice to ManagementAdvice

focus on providing leadership and removing obstacles to getting the job done. We are too process heavy which slows down decision making and execution.

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    - Compensation
    - Brand Name (although becoming somewhat tarnished)
    - Resources (technologies and transportation among other things)
    - Location (both Redmond and Bellevue locations are nice)

    Cons

    - Work/life balance is non-existent
    - No longer forward-thinking (i.e too many 'me-too' offerings)
    - Performance evaluations are ambiguous
    - Ability to move within the company is limited
    - Morale in many departments is low

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to your employees' ideas
    - Stop trying to follow Apple and Google
    - Make the performance evaluation process more transparent

    Doesn't Recommend
