Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Redmond, WA
Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) in Redmond, WA

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

Pros

The benefits are amazing, including health, life, 401, shuttle, meal cards. The work is good, fast, and the co-workers are enthusiastic. The campus is beautiful and Seattle is a fun city. Oh, also, the pay is amazing.

Cons

The job can sometimes move fast, and standing out can be difficult amidst the clutter. This job is software development and systems engineering, not theory or science.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to work on interesting, challenging problems. Products used by millions or hundreds of millions. Hours are flexible with no reporting - as long as you're getting your work done, nobody cares about your hours. Nobody cares about how you dress either.

    Cons

    Some degree of internal politics, but that's unavoidable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to be faster and make better decisions about competing with our major competitors like Apple and Google.
