Job satisfaction and security

Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsVery good benefits and good pay. Several different product teams to choose from. Option to move around different groups within company every 12-18 months.

ConsNot very easy to switch groups. Often required to do a full interview loop when switching teams even if its within the same product group.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to compete with other tech companies that are snatching away talent from Microsoft by offering higher salaries.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
