    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Redmond, WA
    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test (SDET) II in Redmond, WA

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

    Pros

    Old MS employee always they like MS in old time, but not recently. Thing change and people is leaving.

    Cons

    The great tech was happened before, but it looks like now they more care is review, and review is controlled by small group of people -- leaders. So making good relationship to leader is more important compare with making good product. Tech become a tool, not goal. More and more MS employer start tired to internal political and lost trust to MS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a fair review process may be able to bring the employer trust back, but I doubt if it is possible to happen.
