Former Intern - PM Intern in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

-Great products
-great opportunities
-PM roll rocks

Cons

-hit or miss with management. i had really bad luck with a manager that rejected her last 3 interns.
-no personalized attention really -- off on your own and expected to figure things out completely (my experience, my friend had different experiences)
-traffic if commuting from downtown Seattle

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Invest more in your employees
-Try to keep groups seem smaller

  1. A company with great potential and opportunity, but politics and poor leadership often hinder this.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for roles and even changes in career objectives.

    Cons

    Political infighting and poor management can often sabotage the end deliverable. Organizations can be slow to change and lack agility to keep up with market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set people managers up for success by making the "people management" commitment the biggest part of their job. Remove managers that show little or no aptitude for this skill.
