Smart people, ability to make a real difference

Principal Program Manager Lead (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe ability to work on real, cool and important technology that is used by millions of people across the world. Intelligent, helpful and hard-working people. The changing industry landscape is spurring more innovation and new opportunities. The work culture is stable and welcoming, people are expected to have meaningful lives outside of work. :-)

ConsAdapting to change isn't always easy (reorgs can be confusing to navigate), there's often an underlying tension about performance reviews, and we have quite a bit of room to grow when it comes to collaborating across organizations.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to encourage divisions to collaborate to build great customer experiences, continue to encourage taking risks and trying new things. Keep up the great benefits! The new health center on campus is awesome.

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