Former Employee - Sales Manager in London, England (UK)

I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very friendly people and environment - everyone is happy to help
Good work life balance
Good benefits and bonus scheme
Established and profitable company - they know what they are doing

Cons

Can be difficult to get promoted as it's hard to get recognised
Some managers have stayed managers for a while
Microsoft do not promote a up or out culture, not sure if this is a good thing
Average churn rate - People who don't get promoted typically move on
Competition for internal roles are quite high
Pay isn't in-line with industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Shape up the coasters (too many mediocre managers, not high performing)
Ensure compensation and pay is reflective of achievement and level of experience
Big discrepancy of pay between contractors and business divisions (sales vs operations)
Treat contractors with the same respect as FTEs

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
