Targets set to 130% of what is reasonable.

Programmer Writer (Former Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsPick your manager, the good ones will excuse the things you don't get to. Network with other groups, pick a winning product, don't get tied down with a losing product. Benefits and perks are great, they are giving all sort of windows 8 goodies to the FTEs - while they are cutting medical coverage - go figure.

ConsWork life balance is a joke unless you are very tight with your manager. Manage your own career, Microsoft will not love you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
