Former Employee - Identifiable, Prefer Not to Say in Redmond, WA

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

Pros

work with some brilliant people
people see it on your resume and think you know all
FANTASTIC health and benefits packages
great development opportunities, you learn valuable skills in day to day work
"Working at microsoft is like highly paid grad school"

Cons

very demanding of employee time, often not respectful of work/life balance
"reorgs" are a routine and often pointless or net-loss game of management musical chairs
can be difficult to navigate within such a huge organization

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about real problems to solve instead of lots of disconnected cool features that seem interesting in a ppt presentation

    Disapproves of CEO
