    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer In Test Lead in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer In Test Lead in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company stability, education and certification support, relatively good work/life balance in mature teams

    Cons

    Terrible managers around (not all, but a higher index of really bad managers than any other place before), slow growth for experienced industry hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the ranking system, use a competency based performance evaluation that doesn't assume 10% of bad performers and instead of improving the company, creates the trend for 50% to focus on politics and "perform well" while creating +30% underperformers
