Current Employee - Business Development Manager
Current Employee - Business Development Manager

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

Pros

Creative, intelligent people. You have the autonomy to craft your business within certain pre-determined boundaries. Benefits are excellent and there is flexiblity in work/life balance. Compensation is reasonable.

Cons

Working long hours. High stress especially in sales roles. Lots of complexity and ambiguity. You have to really know how to navigate Microsoft to be successful. Promotions are few even when exceed goals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to develop a genuine interest in your people.
