Software Manager (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

Pros- Lot's of smart people
- Great work-life balance

Cons- Lot's of people that think they're really smart...
- Attention seeking Divas galore
- No real concept of shipping software

Advice to Senior Management- Focus on results rather than on white papers - publications do not mean much if they're re-factoring someone else's patent
- Get some real Dev manager to drive development

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Though there's a recent attempt… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
