Easy tech job, well paying

Product Manager (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

ProsMicrosoft is fairly easy work-wise compared to other tech companies in the sector. If you're looking to have a life and get a pretty good paycheck, you should work here. If you want to make huge blazing changes in the industry, don't bother unless you are very senior -- too large of a company to make any real change

ConsDue to its size, there's a lot of employee redundancy and bloat. Too much red tape and working with multiple teams to get very simple tasks completed. Your manager will make or break you here - be sure you get a good one.

Advice to Senior ManagementAlign senior exec incentives to things like innovation and creativity, constantly measuring performance with scorecards is a waste of time and doesn't bring us any closer to coming up with new ideas

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
