Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Redmond, WA
Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Salary is good. Benifit is good. Work place is good. People are nice.

Cons

Usually young people are hard to take challenging work. Promotion is mainly based on how long you have worked here. Hard to get promotion quickly, especailly in some old teams, like Windows, Office.
