    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II

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

    Pros

    Lots of different products and areas to work. You can work in industry leading products as well as underdog products.

    Cons

    Slow to react to changing consumer product tastes. Microsoft needs mobile to be hit to guarantee success of Windows and its auxiliary businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Execute faster on big bets and start to rely less on 3rd party ecosystem to fill in the gaps.

    Current Employee - Program Manager in Redmond, WA
    Current Employee - Program Manager in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Microsoft full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Awesome tech. Really smart people. Global diversity. Culture is still based in innovation. As far as companies, in America go, this is one of the best.

    Cons

    Feels like congress sometimes. Politics and duplicative work assignments lead to gross inefficiencies. Growth here is not real, unless you feel like more responsibility at the same pay rate is professional growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in yourself as leaders. Grow leadership muscles. Rethink the fact that someone needs to leave MSFT and come back 6 months later; if they want to progress in their career. That is just silly.
