    Disappointed with the work culture

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    * Good salary, sign-on stock bonus
    * Good health benefits, not so good anymore
    * Brilliant co-workers

    Cons

    * Extremely aggressive culture
    * Groupism, tendency to not let new people in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the performance review system to encourage co-operation and knowledge sharing among employees. Manager needs to ensure that the team attitude towards new employees should be one of inclusion, make it easy for them to adapt to the new product, teammates, processes at Microsoft.
