MIcrosoft offered a lot of opportunities

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsGreat people. Field positions offer great autonomy.

ConsCompany culture encourages taking big risks, but if you fail you pay the price.

Review system positions co-workers against each other. To succeed too much time is needed to play the political game instead of doing the work. Performance reviews are too heavily weighted on Managers opinions and peer feedback, not on the work. I would not work again in a company that had this type of review system.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the review system. It doesn't foster team work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
