Good for lifetime employment

MACH Trainee (Former Employee)
Moscow (Russia)

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

ProsLiberal, democratic environment. Have two career paths - either horizontal (specialist) or vertical. Lifetime employment very possible, practically guaranteed :)

ConsIf you want a challenging demanding job, might not be the right place. If you want to try many new things - then yes.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
