Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Working with some of the smartest people tackling real hard problems
- Great benefits
- Opportunity to move around and try a lot of different roles and get exposure to different businesses without leaving the company.

Cons

- Slow decisions, lot of overhead due to various internal processes and reviews which are unnecessary.
- Career growth has begun to slow down across the board as company is not growing much
- Bloated; lots of roles (especially in Marketing) are totally unnecessary; there is also a lot of overlap.

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

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (less than a 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.

    Pros

    Benefits, benefits, benefits! Plenty of opportunity for growth if you take advantage. You get out of it what you put into it.

    Cons

    Review structure, frequent reorgs, experience depends on your management.
