It's a very big company, and there can be differences in work culture cross divisions.

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Lots of opportunities. Lots of smart people. Good work life balance

    Cons

    Hideous review system that forces managers to unjustly punish perfectly good employees. This creates politics and backbiting that is totally unnecessary. Also, the bureaucratic maze can be deadening – much effort gets wasted in useless meetings, but I suppose this is true in any 100k+ size company.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please, please give us a fair ranking system!!!

    MS had gone downhill over the last 7 years or so.

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Stack ranked review system. Constant peer competition, and not collaboration.

    Advice to Management

    Change the review process. Period. It used to be the benefits that lured people to MS. Now they’re comparable to all other big companies. Nothing special about them.
