    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

    I worked at Microsoft full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible and pleasant work environment
    Some great colleagues
    Interesting work and room for growth
    Constant personal development and challenges

    Cons

    As with all large companies, some slow structural processes
    It can be a pressurised environment
    Politics can be rife in certain departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt a review process that does not alwaysdepend on having a % of people scoring low
    Be attentive to bullying and buck-passing
    Try to see things from a customer perspective- a more real world view. MS can be very insular and removed from the Irish business place of SMB's.

    Feeding from the fire hose...if you like that sort of thing.

    Current Employee - Premier Field Engineer

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Opportunity for self-improvement is the best. If you are the type that likes to constantly learn, then jump on board, but it's a fire hose of information! Great managers and people to work with, but very high expectations, so be willing and ready to go overboard on delivery.

    Cons

    Travel, travel, travel. A lot of internal processes that take time away from your primary job and don't seem to make sense to your job. Did I say travel?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better onboarding processes instead of being thrown into the fire.
