    Current Employee - Senior Financial Manager in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    All types of opportunities... if you know the right people.

    Cons

    People have been at MS for many years leading to many generals and few soldiers all vying for the same opportunities. It limits the ability to grow and get promotions.

    Current Employee - Program Manager II in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Smart, hard working, co-workers are generally interesting and friendly
    Great benefits and good compensation provided
    Reach over a billion users with your work, unique opportunity to have massive impact

    Cons

    High stress and poor work-life balance frequently impact employee's health and/or family life
    Globally-distributed engineering teams mean lots of evening and weekend meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the unwritten policy of understaffing if you are serious about security, quality, and employee retention.
