A great place to work

Associate Consultant (Current Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat benefits, great salary, great people. There is a lot to love about this company.

ConsUpper management sucks, stack ranking sucks, *everyone* is an overachiever and if you are not then you will stand out for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the stack ranking as it discourages cooperation and keeps people from doing things that may help the company. Listen to consumers more.

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