Too much Politics

Sales Director (Current Employee)
Much (Germany)

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than 10 years

ProsBrand name is still good and the people overall are great

ConsAdancement and general well being is much more based on who you know rather than how you do. Recent articles criticizing MS as workplace are spot on. Also, where are they going?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
