Current Employee - Senior Manager in Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great company to make an impact, contribution potential is exceptional. Excellent work-life balance.

Cons

We often work, including during off-time. Totem rating is often unfair, as it rewards those with tenure and typically punishes those who are new or not vocal.
