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

    Good for those that like that sort of thing

    Program Unit Manager (Former Employee)

    I worked at Microsoft full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: You work with very smart people The benefits are excellent and HR does a lot for you There are many interesting projects… Cons: Projects often fall victim to politics Planning changes too frequently as management is in constant flux Too little attention is paid to user-centric design. Somehow groups of great… Advice to Senior Management: Test users outside of the Redmond area Don't change direction every six months Not everything in… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
