    Former Employee - Program Manager II in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Program Manager II in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of internal opportunities - if you don't like your current job/manager/project - you can make a change without leaving the company.
    Benefits are top-notch.
    Compensation is finally (as of 2012) up to par with other big local players.

    Cons

    Very uneven work/life balance across the company. A lot depends on a team, and a manager.
    Review system (as of 2012) creates unhealthy rush to avoid getting the bottom 2 ratings (which 20% of the people HAVE to receive). It's next to impossible to go anywhere in the company with a bad rating.
