Good company to work for, though roles can disappear in an instant as products get dropped.

Solution Specialist (Former Employee) Reading, England (UK)

ProsRenumeration is good for a large corporate. Shares given regularly though upside on shares is low.
Access to great technology, and good staff software perks including employee purchase and free MSDN Ultimate.

ConsQuite political and sometimes doesn't feel like everyone is pulling in the same direction. Review system isn't great, can sometimes act unfairly to both high and low achievers which can impact bonuses and often success is very dependent on the product rather than the individual.

Advice to Senior ManagementMicrosoft has excellent integration between its software products - try and sell solutions that add client value rather than just trying to bundle products up in an EA or driving hard to get an unneeded product in the EA.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
