    Former Employee - Market Research Manager in Redmond, WA

    Pros

    It was fun to work with the smart, passionate people here. The benefits have been great.

    Cons

    Each year, there seems to be more process and administrative hurdles to deal with. So much time is spent getting everyone to buy off on everything that it has become difficult to get anything done. This squashes innovation as well. The review system is dysfunctional.
