Good Deal, Strong WL Balance

Program Manager (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

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

ProsGood work life balance (depending on the group), a good compensation deal. A renewed focus on building the product stack.

ConsStack ranking means that you're competing with your team members, which strongly inhibits teamwork.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you're serious about rewarding working with each other, you need to change the stack rank system.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
