Former Employee - Group Program Manager  in  Redmond, WA
Former Employee - Group Program Manager in Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

vast resources - human and monetary, small team atmosphere (most of the time), there is a process involved but if you can dream it up -MS can make it happen, excellent salary/benefits package.

Cons

As with any large organization there is a fair bit of politicking going on and the old (and not so old) boy network is very strong. You will be expected to sacrifice everything to deliver - maybe not a con for some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Probably time for some new blood at the top in several areas.

    Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Smartest group of people an any company. Diverse, caring, professional, people do what it takes to get the job done. Not afraid to switch course quickly.

    Cons

    It is a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to not be compared to Consumer Companies such as Apple and Google. Enterprise is a completely different market.
