    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

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