Great people, exciting work

Engineering Manager (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

ProsTop notch people in virtually all functons
Despite external perception that MS is 'the new IBM" there are some really cool projects going on and company working better across divisions than ever before.

Consthe performance review process is deeply flawed. it doesn't drive culture of collaboration, even though most people work together well despite the distribution curve.

Advice to Senior Managementchange the performance system, it sucks. manage out poor performers and reward the superstars without having to create "C" labels on the other 70% of employees.

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