Current Employee - Principal Program Manager Lead in Redmond, WA
Current Employee - Principal Program Manager Lead in Redmond, WA

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

Pros

The 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. :-)

Cons

Adapting 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 ManagementAdvice

Continue 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.

    Nothing in particular. 3 months may not be enough for a full fledged project, so it takes a lot of effort, but it is worth it
