Current Employee - Project Manager

I have been working at Microsoft

Pros

Benefits, Discounts, Co-Workers, clean work environment.

Cons

Calibration, tons of process, really hard to grow and find new positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The ability to grow and try new things is stifled by the constant fear that failure will show up in calibration. One bad year (or quarter) or a manager that isn't a fan, and you have no opportunity to redeem yourself. You are out. That is not my case but I've seen it happen to many otherwise stellar employees around me.

    I worked at Microsoft

    Pros

    smart colleagues, good community engagement through giving and volunteer program, opportunities to do a variety of jobs or work on a range of technologies.

    Cons

    ambiguity is a consistent state and dealing with that is not for everyone, the manager you have matters so much more than other factors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire smart people and let them flourish

    No opinion of CEO
