    Current Employee - Sales - Enterprise in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Transparent pay system, excellent health benefits, and perks like matching volunteer hours with money form Microsoft. There is a great amount of internal mobility and ability to career change and develop new skills. The products are cool, and Microsoft Research and Product Groups are doing really cool stuff in some areas.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is sometimes stifling. Many groups are understaffed, and so schedules can be hectic. Career advancement outside of Redmond can be a bit more limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better engineer career tracks that allow for advancement of women and minorities, especially in technical roles. Limit bureaucracy in field sales roles. Invest more heavily on first line manager training to promote career planning, employee retention, and job effectiveness.

    Senior mgmt needs to go back to the core and start investing money in people vs treating it like Walmart and cutting corners. Too many re orgs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in people and technology to again lead vs wait for someone else to lead and then try and compete.
