Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

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

Pros

Flexible hours, great pay & benefits. The management on my team is phenomenal at recognizing the strengths of each individual and giving assignments based on those. I really like being able to work from home when I need. Additionally, I haven't been forced to work nights or weekends once my entire career.

Cons

I don't really like living in Redmond, and there aren't too many opportunities to work in other cities if you are a technical engineer.

    Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager  in  Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Senior Product Marketing Manager in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Microsoft, at least in STB, is a great place to work, great products, very good senior leadership and a great engagement with customers, partners and community.

    Cons

    Company structure and politics leads to a lot of time wasted and products shipped that show the seams of the company. A SteveB level restructure is needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure into 5 groups, get rid of peripheral distractions, stop focusing on the consumer stuff so much - we are not Apple so stop trying to be.
