Not the company it was

Sales Manager (Current Employee)
Reading, England (UK)

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

ProsLots of smart people
Some cool technology

ConsAn evil competititive review system that makes for a poisonous culture that reward backstabbing and crawling over quiet accomplishment of the job.
A top down, "do as you are told" style of management that does not encourage or reward initiative - they say the opposite but effectively the only way to succeed is to do what you are told, how you are told to the letter and then do down your rivals so senior management have to you the "sound" list. They even admit "managing upwards" is a key skill to success - this in reality means crawling and over blowing your own successes at the expense of your colleagues.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the competititve review system.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
