I worked at Microsoft

Pros

Microsoft does a great job of enbracing the extrepreneurial spirit of employees and the company will spare no expense to get employess the tools needed to be successful. However, work/life balance will suffer tremendously because employees are always expected to be on/connected. All in all, Microsoft is a great company to work for.

Cons

Work/life balance at Microsoft is not very good. Employees are expected to be connected all the time and the company does very little to embrace the diversity of hispanic americans and african americans and that fact is underscored but the overall number of hires in those two classes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management could do a better job of communicating the truth to employess about the company commitment to family so that people will not be blind sided.

    Pros

    Great comp and opportunities to impact the market. Fantastic resource available to do your job. You have the opportunity to move around the organization.

    Cons

    It's sink or swim management. If you get a new manager that's difficult to work with you are stuck. Upper management or HR will not intervene. I did not survive in spite of my best efforts to adapt and correct the situation.
