Microsoft is a great place to work - great benefits & advancement opportunities!

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe pros are the benefits and the advancement opportunities. The health care changed this year but it's still better than most places. They also focus on your career and advancement which is great! It's also a casual dress environment which I personally love!

ConsThe cons are the work-life-balance. Most people seem to always be busy and the amount of meetings and email is unreal!

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more job-share, part-time or telework opportunities and focus more on work-life-balance. I know it's a top priority in some orgs but could have even more focus and creative solutions.

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