    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Sharp individual contributors, but all the good and hones ones (i.e. who don't play dirty political games) quit.

    Cons

    1) the worst performance review model ... ever! Encourages competition and backstabbing, not collaboration and a healthy team environment.
    2) Deteriorating health benefits
    3) Flat stock
    4) Poor work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop living in political circles, either in or out (i.e. be more inclusive and accpeting of other management styles and techniquest). If that's not an option for you old geazers, then get out!
