Overall Satisfied

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

ProsFor talented and smart individuals, there are opportunities to move within the company and for your career to grow. People at Microsoft are generally given the free reign to find out what is possible and to try out their ideas.

ConsRecent changes in the health plan are difficult. I believe it diminishes the value of the overall Microsoft employment package. The review system is on a curve, so it can be difficult to stay competitive and above the curve. Team situations that are out of one's control can hold you back from an above average review score or from promotion.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
