Interesting work,

Software Development Lead (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

Pros- Broad set of products to work on
- Mostly smart and driven employees
- Great pay / benefits
- Good flexibility in terms of how to do your job

Cons- Pockets of bureaucracy (depends a lot on the team)
- Performance review system does not empower managers to do what is right for each employee
- Organizational structure with Dev/Test/PM leaders for each area can lead to conflicting priorities / values

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall, I feel the company is moving in a good direction recently. Need to continue to focus on going deeper on fewer products, hold leaders accountable. Fix the review system.

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