I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Driven, hard working individuals who care about the company, the product but also the society that they live in - Microsoft doesn't make products to just make $$$'s - but to try and improve the world.

Cons

Can be very (Redmond) US centric

Recommends
Positive Outlook

    Former Employee - Senior Country Manager RSM in Schiphol (Netherlands)

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

    Pros

    One big happy family with a huge jar of cookies for cookie monsters.

    Cons

    Too much politics and networking, its not about being good, but about looking good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more consumer minded people on board and get the "corporate" people out of the consumer space.
