A company offering great opportunity

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

ProsAt Microsoft, any employee has the ability to control his/her career. There are any number of opportunities to move and develop based on the skills and career interests that one may have. In addition, the organization is full of some of the best and brightest in the industry.

ConsSome of the most prevalent downside of most large organizations also exist at Microsoft. For example, bureaucracy and political positioning are normal parts of many roles at Microsoft.
