Good place to work but lost it's way

Sales Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsGood benefits, work environment and generally good people to work with. Lot's of opportunities to move internally and also to move internationally

ConsThe review system is Microsoft's achilles heel in terms of talent management. It favours those who are very good at working the system rather than doing an excellent job. This means that getting your bonus is based very subjectively depending on how well you get on with your boss and how well they get on with their boss. The scorecard mentality also put the focus internally rather than to the customer

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Being a tester, if you believe you are not going to be important to the product, Microsoft is the place which will just prove you… Cons: Microsoft is such a big IT company - it builds products for almost all tech.
