    Former Employee - Product Manager in Redmond, WA

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Very rewarding work environment for most of the people I know.

    Cons

    The company used to be filled with the smartest people in the world. Now, not so much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to a 6 month review. The one year cycle is way too long and it's letting the lazy charge at the end for the high review scores. It happens a lot more than you realize. Very disheartening for those of us who want to do a good job and build great products full time.
