Like working with smart people? Check out Microsoft

Senior Marketing Communications Manager (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsLots of great opportunities to work with smart, passionate people on projects that are cutting-edge within the technology arena.
Rarely is there a shortage of resources, and that's super nice after working in cash-strapped start-ups in prior jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe open and honest and transparent about how people can grow within their professions and get promoted.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
