Great company

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

ProsSuperb management. Good cafes. Great culture.

ConsRapid, awful outsourcing now to lower skilled countries without the technical ability. I worry about future products due to the poorer software engineering quality. Looking for work elsewhere as result.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop offshoring to lower quality engineering centers. Invest in team USA where the best universities and educational institutions in the world train good workers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
